The reviewer would like to thank Editor-in-Chief Anne Kruse and especially Senior Associate Editor Odia B. Cissé for the time they spent making this book review accurate, coherent, and, frankly, structured like a book review. The reviewer would also like to thank his mentors at Yale, Susan Hyde and Nikolay Marinov, who introduced him to democracy assistance, and his bosses at the National Endowment for Democracy, Georges Fauriol and Myriam Fizazi-Hawkins, who gave him unparalleled opportunities to pursue his professional interests.
