"...It is without doubt that this book offers an excellent presentation on the background of the issue of displacement by development.... Students and researchers will find this book as an essential reading material on the issue of displacement by development. As this book is the result of two research projects by the authors, they base their arguments on a plethora of sources from social sciences, humanities, law to economics, indicating their wealth of knowledge on the topic. The bibliography list alone is impressive and the book stands as an indispensable resource on this issue." --Maša Kovič-Dine, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS)
