Limits to Privatization is the first thorough audit of privatisations around the world. It outlines the historical emergence of globalisation and liberalisation, and from analyses of over 50 case studies of best- and worst-case experiences of privatisation, it provides guidance for policy and action that will restore and maintain the right balance between the powers and responsibilities of the state, the private sector and the increasingly important role of civil society. The result is a book that challenges one of the orthodoxies of our day and provides a benchmark for future debate.
