This volume explores the unanticipated consequences of emulating, importing, or imposing new institutional models without commensurate attention to the particular constellations of interests, identities, norms, and social relations embedded in local communities. Each chapter is organized around a common problematic that has received only limited attention in the literature on institutional change: the dilemmas of deploying the rules, practices, and design of institutions that have been imported or imposed from external environments in regions where actors are more familiar with and find more legitimate locally embedded norms, practices, social relations, and knowledge structures.  The volume strives to illustrate the analytic power of the concept of 'syncretism,' a concept that can be fruitfully deployed to analyze common aspects of institutional change not easily captured in existing frameworks.

Review:

"Dennis Galvan and Rudra Sil have assembled an exceptionally fine volume. Reconfiguring Institutions Across Time and Space is thoughtful, well-written and down-right interesting. Their focus on 'Institutional Syncretism' makes a significant advance in our understandings of institutional change, just as each of the substantive chapters gives us remarkably deep analyses of particular countries undergoing institutional transformation.  I highly recommend this book."
--Sven Steinmo, European University Institute (EUI) "This is a timely book. It has long been an open secret that the wave of new institutionalist analyses have begun to founder on the problem of how to explain change.  Stuck in a language of constraint, institutionalism often looks on silently as actors redesign the rules that are intended to constrain them.  Galvan, Sil and their collaborators present here an extremely innovative solution to this problem in the form of "syncretism".  Emphasizing creative agency and focusing on processes of institutional recomposition in a broad array of both developing and developed country contexts,  this volume makes great strides toward the development of an alternative, constructivist, and open-ended form of institutional analysis.  Highly recommended for anyone interested in problems of development and change."
--Gary Herrigel, Professor of Political Science, University of Chicago
