Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Ross's work in an important documentation of the process by which political and economic elites invented new institutions and introduced new forms of patronage. This documentation is a valuable contribution to knowledge." Pacific Affairs

"This is an important contribution and makes the book one that will garner much attention from those interested in natural-resource management and economic development." Governance

"...Ross's book makes an important contribution to our theorizing of the effects of natural resources exports on the mostly negative trajectory of institutions. Its clear and readable prose, cogent argument, and detailed histories of political parties and institutions should make it a useful addition to instruction on the politics and economics of timber in Southeast Asia and natural resources more generally." Society and Natural Resources
