Cohen and Peterson have created a practical and theoretically rich look at administrative decentralization from the past four decades, with a focus on the problems confronting developing countries since the 1990s.

"This important book builds on the 20 years of research and practical field experience both Cohen and Peterson have had with decentralization. They break the fetters that our established ways of thinking about decentralization have created and offer a new approach to its conceptualization and implementation. The result is both practical and theoretically rich."
