"Aidi's study contributes to our understanding of the complex dynamics of market reforms. He rightly notes that rather than simply shrinking the state, neoliberal reforms redefine the state's role in society and reshape the state's relationships with both society and the economy. . . This is a welcome addition to the comparative study of neoliberalism and further contributes to linking the study of the Middle East to broader theoretical debates in comparative politics."

"The major strengths of the book are its historical approach, its concern for institutions and the relevance of the [Latin American and Middle Eastern] cases compared. It's a relief to see there are still texts with these characteristics, that go beyond methodological individualism and presumptuous attempts of statistics."
"Redeploying the State is an important cross-continental analysis that is recommended to scholars of both the Middle East and Latin America."
