Editorial Reviews

Review

"An important, engaging, and thoroughly original book ... Social Safeguards demands that we pay attention to the negative impacts of development projects, that we listen to those being harmed, and that we find ways to ensure that the benefits of development are shared equally."--David Vine, university professor and author of Island of Shame

"Could you imagine what may happen to you and your family if you were forced to leave your home because of a development project? This is a recommended reading about the challenges, pitfalls and lessons from the evolving relationship between big infrastructure projects and local communities."--Lidia Reboucas, Sr Social Specialist, ERM Brazil

"A book that should be read by all of us in the development industry.  It illustrates in simple, highly accessible language why we have social safeguards ... to insure that the least among us have the opportunity to participate in the development process"--William Partridge, consultant in international development and former lead anthropologist with the World Bank

"An invaluable wake-up call and resource for chartering best practices going forward." --Midwest Book Review
