9780099523512: Wars, Guns and Votes: Democracy in Dangerous Places

The world is in a mess. For more than a billion people, everyday life is played out against the backdrop of civil wars, military coups and failing economies. For them, the peaceful democracy taken for granted in the West seems an impossible pipe-dream.

But solutions do exist - it is up to us to achieve them. Award-winning academic Paul Collier's vision for the future of the developing world is eye-opening, provocative and refreshingly unequivocal.

Review:

"Very important ideas based on extremely thorough empirical research...put him in the same camp as real heavyweights such as the Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz" (Misha Glenny Guardian)

"Collier comes up with very concrete proposals and some ingenious solutions" ( The Times)

"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)

"With its verve, wit and lateral thinking, this is a book that changes its readers' horizons" ( Observer)

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

Review:

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