This important book explores the various ways in which new international and transnational forces--especially multilateral financial agencies, humanitarian relief organizations, and northern NGOs--are shaping the development state in Sri Lanka. The new circles of power that are being drawn by them are playing a substantial role not only in reorganizing the political economy of the country, but also in integrating it into a new cultural and ideological order through the creation of transnational networks. Presenting a view from the 'South'on global society, this insightful book presents a critical yet sympathetic examination of the new forces that are shaping societies in developing countries.
