Product description


"It is always a pleasure to discover Paul Collier's latest thoughts...always illuminating and grounded in rigorous social's gripping stuff" (Allister Heath Literary Review)

"Collier knows Africa intimately... It is hard to be unmoved by his anger about the world's blindness to realities, and his passion to do things better" (Max Hastings Sunday Times)

"His recent Book Wars, Guns and Votes, is all the more remarkable in that it is based on impeccable scholarship and statistical analysis but remains highly readable and accessible." (Bruno Tertrais Survival)


"It's hard to be unmoved by [Collier's] anger about the world's blindness to realities, his passion to do things better."
