|I have enjoyed reading this book. This is a wide-ranging, scholarly, yet very readable volume focused on intriguing question of why (or why not) people pay taxes. Mathews focus of the research includes experiences drawn from other times and many countries thus making clear that the tendency of trying to evade the tax collector is universal in time and space. Anyone interested in direct taxation, particularly income taxation in developing countries, is likely to find this work highly valuable.

The eminently readable Making People Pay by Sibichen Mathew is a great intellectual effort. I must congratulate him for this scholarly work. It has its own wry humor of the tax-man. The book amply rewards the reader.
