Endorsement from Paul Collier

In Rule of the Clan on November 5, 2012 at 11:16 am

I’m very pleased to report that The Rule of the Clan has received a jacket endorsement from economist Paul Collier, Director for the Center for the Study of African Economies at the University of Oxford, former director of the Development Research Group of the World Bank, and author of The Bottom Billion: Why the Poorest Countries are Failing and What Can be Done About It. Prof. Collier writes:

The Rule of the Clan confronts an uncomfortable but important reality. In the process it challenges the careless liberal assumption that national identity is an anachronism and a strong state a threat.”

I’m delighted to receive this endorsement, which catches an essential part of the book’s argument about what modern liberal societies can learn from societies governed by “the rule of the clan.”
