Beyond the Miracle of the Market: The Political Economy of Agrarian Development in Kenya
The last two decades of the 20th Century witnessed the first generation of economics reforms -- ones that promoted the market and denigrated the state. This book was one of the first to expose the inadequacy of this position and to demonstrate the importance of institutions for economic behavior. Noting that Kenya grew while other countries were declining, it attributed Kenya's exceptionalism to its economic institutions, which enabled people to undertake productive activities that they would have been afraid to undertake in purely market settings, i.e. settings that lacked political regulation and governing institutions.
