This timely and important book traces the historical processes behind the privatisation of electricity and water services in El Salvador and Costa Rica, exploring the motivations behind these decisions. The book is a model of comparative research design. . . . Haglund s study deserves to be widely read by students and scholars of comparative politics, globalisation and development studies, and public policy and administration. Its theoretical sophistication and accessible writing style make it suitable for use in upper-level undergraduate and graduate classrooms, but also of interest to experts. --Susan Spronk, University of Ottowa
