From the reviews: "What makes this book both challenging and refreshing is that it's produced from within the area by those with a vested interest in examining the real issues and commenting upon them. ! Overall, this is a very interesting book. ! It also contains a wealth of detail not easily found elsewhere. ! it would make a fascinating case study and an entry into more detailed work about the region."
