Overview

Right-Sizing the State: The Politics of Moving Borders by Brendan O'Leary

Strategic decisions to reduce the size, scope, or ambitions of organizations—including states—to enhance future prospects are among the most difficult and least understood conclusions. This volume identifies the conditions in which less really is more, analyzing the possibilities for institutional redesign—including state contraction—for responding effectively to destabilizing and often violence-laden conflicts. Among the countries discussed in detail are Turkey, Pakistan, Morocco, Congo, Jordan, Indonesia, Russia, the former Soviet Union, Iraq, and India.
