Bayliss, Kate and Fine, Ben, eds. (2007) Privatization and Alternative Public Sector Reform in Sub-Saharan Africa: Delivering on Electricity and Water. Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan.
This book documents the growth in privatization in the delivery of water and electricity in SSA over the 1990s and 2000s, showing how numerous governments have gone to considerable lengths in an effort to attract investors into these sectors. The book dismantles the theoretical and empirical arguments to show that the donor-driven growth in privatisation was based on little substance beyond frustration with the state. The book goes on to reveal that what is considered to be a new approach is the same policy modified to increase the likelihood of it being implemented rather than the radical rethink that is required.
