Trust is the Coin of the Realm

Lessons from the Money Men in Afghanistan

Edwina A. Thompson

  • Easy, accessible style despite technical content
  • Book on trust, based on interviews that also required a high degree of trust between author and subjects in the "underworl" (mainly "money-men" whose activities blended with the illegal trade in opium)
  • Combined theoretical quality and empirical scope
  • Policy relevance--after 8 years of conflict and development assistance, a solution to Afghanistan's problems still eludes policymakers in the world's capitals. This book presents a fresh look at why state-building efforts have failed, and encourages more open dialogue between external reformers and the local institutions they seek to engage
