Writing should not be driven by profit, yet should account for the role of money (
and self-interest) in motivation, a simultaneous admission and rejection of the
power of currency on Tolstoy's part.” In “The Forged Coupon', written from 1902

The dangers of political violence and the possibilities of non-violence were the central themes of three lives which changed the twentieth century - Leo Tolstoy, writer and aristocrat who turned against his class, Mohandas Gandhi who corresponded with Tolstoy and considered him the mostimportant person of the time, and Nelson Mandela, prisoner and statesman, who read War and Peace on Robben Island and who, despite having led a campaign of sabotage, saw himself as a successor to Gandhi.Tolstoy, Gandhi, and Mandela tried to create transformed societies to replace the dying forms of colony and empire. They found the inequalities of Russia, India, and South Africa intolerable yet they questioned the wisdom of seizing the power of the state, creating new kinds of politicalorganisation and imagination to replace the old promises of revolution. Their views, along with their ways of leading others, are closely connected, from their insistence on working with their own hands and reforming their individual selves to their acceptance of death. On three continents, in acentury of mass mobilization and conflict, they promoted strains of nationalism devoid of antagonism, prepared to take part in a general peace.Looking at Tolstoy, Gandhi, and Mandela in sequence, taking into account their letters and conversations as well as the institutions they created or subverted, placing at the centre their treatment of the primal fantasy of political violence, this volume reveals a vital radical tradition whichstands outside the conventional categories of twentieth-century history and politics.

What are the ways to ensure that scholarships, conditional cash transfers and free school meals actually reach their intended beneficiaries? This book assumes that different models of design, targeting, and management of pro-poor incentives can prove more or less successful in maximizing efficiency, transparency, and accountability, and in minimizing the likelihood of errors, fraud and corrupt practices. The authors argue that deliberate actions taken to confront related corruption risks, such as simplified targeting, legal definition of responsibilities, local transparency committees, school display boards, appeals mechanisms, informal whistle-blowing and social audits, among others, are of greater importance than the adopted incentive model. They conclude by highlighting the value of 'mutual accountability systems', where all actors are mutually accountable and subject to checks and balances.
