Pressestimmen"The first systematic, independent assessment of the burgeoning field of international aid to political parties. Carothers' masterful, searching account is critical and sobering, yet also sympathetic and constructive." --Larry Diamond, Hoover Institution, Stanford University "A timely, original study... Carothers goes well beyond the standard laments and prescriptions about the troubled state of political parties in the world to offer new insights and approaches that will stir scholars and provoke practitioners." --Christopher Sabatini, American Society/Council of the Americas
