'This book is the result of the careful and solid work of one of the most experienced development thinkers of our time. The analysis of the current conjuncture is simply brilliant and it renews the International Development Studies field like no other book I know in the past two decades. It should be read and discussed widely by scholars who are concerned with the fate of a world undergoing fast global integration in very troubling ways.'ùArturo Escobar, Kenan Distinguished Professor of Anthropology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA, author of Encountering Development: The Making and Unmaking of the Third World

'What is really meant by "development"? This question faces new light with Eunice Sahle's pathbreaking contribution to international studies. It offers a lucid analysis and critique in which the realities of the global South are not merely "integrated" but frame the analysis. All serious critical scholars will want, and need, to read this book.'ùAbigail B. Bakan, Professor of Political Studies, Queen's University, Canada

'Through the lens of Gramscian critical theory and Quijano's coloniality of power approach, Professor Sahle's exceptional book tackles core debates in development studies, international political economy, security studies and social movement studies. This book fits well within the finest work from Africa's critical intellectual tradition: Rodney, Cabral, Fanon, Amin, Ake, Olukoshi, Mhone, Leys and the like.'ùPatrick Bond, Professor and Director of the Centre for Civil Society, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, South Africa

Moving beyond the concept of 'world orders', and arguing that development studies as a discipline is dominated by a historical, technocratic and assumed scientific perspectives, Eunice Sahle re-examines the concept of development drawing on notions of power and ethics. She also interrogates contemporary debates concerned with the question of transformation of the world order focusing on the rise of China and Russia, securitization of development, the World Social Forum, global governance, global financial crisis and the start of Barack Obama's presidency.-Eunice N. Sable is Associate Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA.
