Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lesorogol's use of experimental economics in this book is exciting and important. It is the only book that I know of that really examines the causes, processes, and outcomes of institutional change using a full complement of these methods. This book genuinely integrates multiple methods, and makes a strong theoretical argument even more believable and stronger because of the diverse data sets and multiple methods drawn on." - Elinor Ostrom, Arthur F. Bentley Professor of Political Science and Co-Director, Center for the Study of Institutions, Population and Environmental Change (CIPEC), Indiana University."

About the Author

Carolyn K. Lesorogol is Assistant Professor of Sociocultural Anthropology at George Warren Brown School of Social Work, Washington University in St. Louis.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book reviews some of the commons and pastoral debates in Kenya, and is focussed on case studies carried out by the author. However the discussion is too constrained and hedged to cast much light on the broader questions (e.g. the effects of privatization of land on household well-being) suggested by the title. This is a pity because the history and impact of modernist land processes in Kenya have far reaching implications, as the late Professor Hastings Okoth-Ogendo pointed out very well.
