Belarus Under Lukashenka: Adaptive Authoritarianism

The consequent enshrinement of texts as the sole source of authenticity is explored in depth, along with its implications...

 Global Magic: Technologies of Appropriation from Ancient Rome to Wall Street Alf Hornborg 9781349932481 Palgrave MacMillan
Modern thought on economics and technology is no less magical than the world views of non-modern peoples. This book reveals how our ideas about growth and progress ignore how money and machines throughout history have been used to exploit less affluent parts of world society. The argument critically explores a middle ground between Marxist political ecology and Actor-Network Theory.
