Development Redefined: How the Market Met Its Match, with John Cavanagh (Paradigm Publishers, 2009)
"Development Redefined offers an invaluable rethinking of development theory and practice by two of the world's most respected scholars/citizens. Their experience, insight, knowledge, activist commitment, and engaging style make this book indispensable reading for anyone concerned with global economic justice and making the world a better place." -- Richard Falk, professor at Princeton University and the University of California-Santa Barbara
"The gripping story of the big lies, the sly co-optations and the backroom deals that disguised a fierce contest as a fake consensus. This is a people's history of the rise of corporate rule and there could be no more trusted or surefooted guides than Robin Broad and John Cavanagh." -- Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine
"To end poverty, it is critical to understand its roots. Broad and Cavanagh dig deep to uncover the origins of poverty and they offer paths to a better future.... A terrific antidote to the popular misconceptions spread by Thomas Freidman and Jeffrey Sachs." -- Vandana Shiva, founder of the Research Foundation for Science, Technology, and Ecology in India, and author of Water Wars and Earth Democracy
