'This is a ground-breaking, nuanced and comprehensive book that grapples with how developing countries in general and Ghana in particular have endured and responded to a decade of neo-liberal ascendancy. Based on astute research, experiences and analysis, the book offers penetrating commentaries on recent socio-economic and political developments in Ghana. A must-read collection of excellent and stimulating ideas.'
Mohamed Salih, University of Leiden and the Institute of Social Studies
'This, the first book-length assessment of the latest experiment in liberal democracy in Ghana, is a timely study. It shows in an admirable way both the progress and the still existing shortcomings in the institutionalization of liberal democracy and will undoubtedly attract a wide readership in academic and policy-making circles.'
Piet Konings, African Studies Centre
'Once again the Department of Political Science at the University of Ghana has produced a volume that captures a good analysis of the political economy of the country...I recommend this book to readers.'
