it is increasingly apparent that the privatization experiment in sub-Saharan Africa has failed. This book shows that the state is set to dominate service delivery for the foreseeable future in much of the region, and that the public sector must be considered as a viable policy option for the delivery of water and electricity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'In so many areas of policy, it has been a matter of 'don't do as we did (and do) do as we say' when it comes to advice and aid from developed to developing countries. As brilliantly demonstrated by this book, the same has been true in relation to privatisation and public sector provision. The results have been disastrous not least in light of what could have been achieved by alternative forms of public delivery of basic services to the poor.' - Ha-Joon Chang, author of Kicking Away the Ladder: Development Strategy in Historical Perspective
