The author based on his experience reveals the important aspects necessary for the development of a fractured state. This book also explains the failures of the international community in establishing functioning states in post conflict societies such as Kosovo, Afghanistan etc. Highly recommended.

This book will echo down the ages for its subject coverage, clarity and good judgement. Not only nation states but all levels of community organisation and health can benefit from the teaching here. In these days of financial recession all can learn from 'Fixing Failed States' about what can be avoided and what can be changed in communities. Every Vicar should be given a copy. Terry

I have read many books on international development and this is by far the worst. It reads like the ramblings of an old professor. There is no real structure to the book which means that the few good points in it are lost amongst the blocks of endless text. This is one of the only book I had to give up on but it is so poorly written and all over the place and couldn't carry on.

I appear in the minority as the other two reviews sing its praises, but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone especailly with the plethora of great development books out there
