"This is a richly researched analysis of the role of the State - and of warfare - in the historical development of capitalism." Development Policy Review
"A very useful and provocative book ... a rich variety of conceptual schema ... Weiss and Hobson's book does an excellent job of synthesizing the conceptual gains of the literature on which they build." American Political Science Review
"States and Economic Development provides an excellent survey of the role of the state action in 'national' economic development and well-being." Political Studies
"This is an informative book which manages to craft a large amount of secondary material into a coherent argument. The emphasis placed on the role of a coordinating and collaborative state, which can also be democratic, is stimulating and ambitious ... this is a thought provoking and stimulating book which should be very useful for both teaching and research." Political Geography
"This is a well-researched, well-written book. It is an excellent summary of recent work on the state in historical sociology. It will be a valuable book for a wide readership, from those concerned with economic development to international relations specialists, and from those interested in social theory to more empirically oriented comparativists." Australian Journal of Political Science
