Reviews of Implementing Inequality
Implementing Inequality is a rare book that comes alive in the best tradition of ethnographic description while building solid theory. Peters' rich account humanizes people in the 'implementariat' and their daily challenges, struggles, and decisions. Ultimately hopeful, Implementing Inequality reminds us that frontline workers are already policymakers whose experience can guide a still-possible transformative development.

This is a timely and well-judged analysis of the 'internal inequalities' that exist at the heart of the project of international development. In a thoughtful and highly readable account of a governance program in Angola, Rebecca Warne Peters combines original theoretical insights with careful empirical analysis.

Peters emphasises the need for a thorough examination of the practices within development organisations if decolonisation initiatives are to be successful. Implementing Inequality is a useful read for both students and development professionals.
