Publisher's Synopsis

The story of how countries are shocked - by wars, terror attacks, coup d'etats, economic crisis and natural disasters. And of how countries are then shocked again - by those who exploit that shock to push through economic reforms that, rather than help a country rebuild itself, serve only to further break it down.
