'Contesting 'good' Governance is an interesting collection of papers exploring local concepts of political process that is misdirected as a critique of notions of governance in current debates in international development.' - Social Anthropology 'The volume will be of interest to political anthropologists concerned with issues of the public sphere, governance, democracy, and so on. It should also be useful for teaching, since most of the chapters are written in an accessible style and include useful summaries of various debates in political anthropology.' - The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
