Editorial Reviews


"This collection of essays -- written by an interdisciplinary team from departments of business, economics, political science, and practitioners from multinational companies -- figures among one of the first attempts to dedicate itself geographically to the region." -- Journal of Latin American Studies

"The authors of this volume examine the characteristics of privatization in the Latin American telecommunications and transportation industries, concentrating on telephone companies and airlines... This book provides an excellent blueprint for understanding the characteristics of privatization in Latin America." -- Julio O. De Castro, Academy of Management Review

"This collection of short privatisation (sic) 'stories' makes surprisingly fascinating reading because of its unusual coherence. This is achieved through an excellent and thoughtful introduction by the editor, and by restricting its focus to a limited geographical area and number of sectors... the discipline of authors in describing their subject matter, and the synthesis which Ramamurti achieves from this experience, render the book both an authoritative source on telecommunications and transport privatisation and a balanced, critical assessment of the process itself." -- Catherine Waddams Price, Journal of Development Studies

"The studies provide background on the politics of privatization and other matters, such as the organizational, labor, and financial restructuring required; negotiation with stakeholders; incentives; and performance after privatization. The different experiences are impressively synthesized by the editor in his overview." -- Antonio Estache, Finance and Development
