'In a world wracked by crises, compromised institutions, and bourgeoning inequalities, Chang and Grabel provide a real, workable roadmap to a post-neoliberal future. Look no further - there are alternatives - and Reclaiming Development points the way.'
James Heintz, University of Massachusetts Amherst
'Chang and Grabel's book takes on even more salience as the world moves from the global financial crisis. The crisis has created new political economies whereby nations and citizens are attempting to "reclaim" their economies for financial stability, inclusive growth, and environmental sustainability. Reclaiming Development remains a key manual for those looking for a more balanced future. It also serves as an important source for arguments that can debunk reactionary efforts to use the crisis as a means to push an agenda of deregulation. Essential reading for policy-makers, students and those in academia.'
Kevin Gallagher, co-director, Global Economic Governance Initiative, Boston University
'This book is not only a superb antidote to the numbing myths of neoliberalism but also a cogent and stimulating presentation of the many possibilities for alternatives to neo-liberal economic policy that both theory and history provide policy-makers and students of development.' --Thandika Mkandawire, Professor of African Development, LSE
