“This is a ground-breaking, nuanced and comprehensive book that grapples with how developping countires in
general, and Ghana in particular, have endured and responded to a decade of neo-liberal ascendancy. Based on astute
research, experiences and analysis, the book offers penetrating commentaries on recent socio-economic and political
developments in Ghana. A ‘must-read’ collection of excellent and stimulating ideas.”
Mohamed Saluh, Professor of Politics of Development, University of Leiden and the Institute of Social Studies, The Netherlands.
“This, first book-length assessment of the latest experiment in liberal democracy in Ghana, is a timely study. It
shows, in an admirable way, both the progress and the still existing shortcomings in the institutionalization of
liberal democracy; and will undoubtedly attract a wide readership in academic and policy-making circles.”
Piet Konings, African Studies Centre, Leiden, The Netherlands.
