Evil Paradises: Dreamworlds of Neoliberalism

by: Mike Davis

Publisher: The New Press (2007)


Staff Pick by comrade: LS

A solid anthology. This book does a good job of making global patterns of economic inequality concrete by detailing the architectural, spatial, and social landscapes created by the globalized economy. Common themes arise in unexpectedly different countries and cultures from Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas. Definitely a worthwhile read.
