'This book could not have been written at a better time. While the book focuses on Kenya, it is equally applicable to all of Africa, Latin America, and perhaps to the newly evolving capitalist countries of Eastern Europe. Must reading for advanced students, researchers, and policymakers concerned with Africa, development economics, or institution building.' Choice
'Theoretically rigorous, at times even elegant, this volume further confirms Robert Bates as one of the keenest observers of the complex relationship between politics and economics in the developing world ... Throughout, Bates masterfully expands on his theoretical arguments, demonstrating that it is necessary to anchor an analysis of class formation within an analysis of social structure and that one has to include an analysis of the broader polity within any study of agrarian politics.' American Political Science Review
'... this is an unusually challenging and insightful volume. It is a major contribution to studies of Kenya while its theoretical and methodological rigor make it of interest well beyond the Kenyan context.' International Journal of African Historical Studies
'... will challenge the thinking of academics and practitioners alike ... The conclusions are valuable, but the story told in getting there is still more valuable in this empirically rich and theoretically challenging study.' American Anthropologist
'... a new edition of a very successful volume first published in 1989. ... I was struck by how well the ... book has aged. It is a complex story, but well told ... [it] shows a truly sophisticated and deep understanding of the new institutionalist analysis.' Public Choice
