Overview

Imperial Nature: The World Bank and Struggles for Social Justice in the Age of Globalization / Edition 1

This pathbreaking book is the first close examination of the inner workings of the World Bank, the foundations of its global achievements, its propensity for intensifying the problems it intends to cure, and its remarkable ability to tame criticism and extend its own reach.

"An excellent critique of the Bank's inner workings and external image-making."—Publishers Weekly

"Imperial Nature’s greatest strength is its analysis of the World Bank as an institution. . . . A valuable resource for activists, students, and scholars, alike."—Joshua Brook, TNR Online

"A compelling study."—Steve Lachman, Environment
