Reviews

"An original and fascinating case study of how on-site development 'experts' are refashioning one corner of the global South into a locus of capitalist expansion. The empirical detail resulting from Jackson's intensive field-work is, in a word, exquisite."

"An admirable study of the development machinery in Honduras... A wonderful and compelling guide through the world of development. This work should get students, scholars, and the general public to seriously rethink it as anything but charitable, temporary, or minimal in its import."

"A detailed overview of how development works in a specific context, it could be well utilized in graduate courses as well as advanced undergraduate courses in globalization and development... A good read in a literary sense, holding the reader’s attention by carefully revealing detail after detail to unveil the hidden layers and the inner workings of economic development and political globalization."

"A rigorous ethnography of the practice of the global actors based in Honduras... There is now an enormous literature that questions the ideological stratagems of the globalization industry as propelled by the claims of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund... Jackson goes deeper than these accounts... What he illuminates is the mechanism by which this democratic powerlessness is produced, one in which consent rather than coercion is the dominant lever."

"This book definitely should go on your list of globalization readings!"
