What People are saying about this

Paul Smoke
Although Bardhan and Mookherjee are economists, they understand that decentralization is fundamentally a political and social transformation. Their volume begins to challenge artificial disciplinary boundaries that have long impeded better conceptual and empirical analysis of decentralization in developing countries.
