This book presents a novel approach to the state (seeing it both from above and below), the cases are geographically wide-ranging and the book would be relevant for a number of courses in political anthropology, development studies and human geography. -- Thomas Hylland Eriksen This is fascinating material, a kind of anthropology of state formation which supplements and broadens what social historians have been writing about states and state formation. -- Professor Richard A. Wilson, University of Connecticut
