[...] the material in this text comes from around the globe, and these local stories aptly demonstrate that it is the logic of capitalism, especially in its neo-liberal form, which is shaping market, state, and culture to support it. The chapters in this text repeatedly point out that the assault on non-capitalist cultures has been relentless, insidious, ingenious, and imperial. It is also shown to be extremely dangerous because it encourages a way of life that not only creates inequality, human suffering, and desperation but is also unsustainable. [...] This work provides each of us with an opportunity to reevaluate the emphasis that we place on the political, economic dimensions of human society and to reaffirm the central place of culture in our understanding of human affairs. It makes an excellent multidisciplinary contribution to the political economy literature.
