This book reconceptualises the notions of state failure and fragility, to provide a new policy-relevant framework on these issues. In a wide-ranging treatment, drawing on large samples and case studies, the authors create an alternative model of the fragile state emphasizing the multidimensional, multifaceted nature of the "fragile state problematique".
