From the Publisher"This book should certainly appear on reading lists as an important counterpoint to more optimistic liberal internationalist and cosmopolitan approaches."
Times Higher Education
"Duffield's book turns the liberal vision of the world upside down."
"A very thought-provoking and insightful work which is warmly recommended toeverybody with an engagement or interest in development policies."
Economics of Peace and Security Journal
"Mark Duffield has written a brilliant book which draws together the strings of the end of the Cold War, the securitization of politics, the development of a neo-liberal discourse of humanitarian intervention, and the fusion of the national and the international. Particularly compelling is his contrarian view of the consequences of the liberation of the UN from the shackles of the Cold War."
Janice Stein, University of Toronto
"Once again, Mark Duffield has gone beyond the platitudes of 'development speak', 'security speak' and 'humanitarian speak'. The book is crammed with insights and with challenges to received wisdom."
David Keen, London School of Economics and Political Science
"Humanitarian and development aid and actors as counterinsurgency: in this carefully documented but devastating analysis of the people-centred technology of security for the West since the mid-1990s and its historical context, Duffield provides both practitioners and scholars with an interpretive framework for the new North'South division and consequences of liberal internationalism that is original and challenging and which demands serious debate."
