Review "This superb book deconstructs political decentralization. Shifting power from central to local governments is widely touted as the key instrument for the creation of effective, responsive government. The evidence does not support these claims, argues Treisman. Using game theory to probe the logic of arguments, and empirical research to test them, Treisman challenges the assumptions that underlie much of the common wisdom being disseminated to guide the design of public institutions. This book needs to be read by policy makers and researchers, from the World Bank to constitution writers and politically engaged citizens the world around." Peter Gourevitch, University of California, San Diego Book Description Examines the most influential arguments about the consequences of political decentralization and challenges the conventional wisdom that decentralization improves government and economic performance. It will be relevant to political scientists and economists concerned with political economy and political institutions.
