Editorial Reviews

Review

“For those interested in social justice, the book is well worth a read.”
(Carolina Saez Law Society Journal 2009-04-01)

From the Inside Flap

"Dignity and Defiance forces the abstract and sanitized theory of globalization to get down and dirty in the real world: in the oil spills, the coca fields, the border crossings, the political massacres. This is the little-known story of a people that has dared to fight back against the most powerful economic forces on the planet, told by writers with the courage to dig relentlessly for the truth and the humility to stand back and let their subjects speak for themselves. Enraging, unsparing, inspiring."—Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine

"These essays illuminate, with consistently careful attention to detail and nuance, just how badly the neoliberal economic regime has served one poor Andean nation. They also suggest, some explicitly, some by implication, what more democratic and humane development might look like."—Bill Finnegan, correspondent, Leasing the Rain

"Shultz and Draper have done what they do best: with a soul like a Bolivian, they not only feel and live the Bolivian world, they use their writing to tell stories about the place they have made their home: Bolivia. Those who need proof will find it reading these pages, which capture the experience of Bolivia's challenge to globalization."—Gustavo Guzmán, Ambassador of Bolivia to the United States

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Essay collections like this can cover a broad range of topics, because different experts investigate each one. It was very through and really connected the Micro history (Bolivia) with the Macro history (theory of Globalization) in a very helpful way. In the tradition of the new left Draper and Shultz do not write against globalization, but against IMF, USA, and World Bank organized globalization. The book is strongly anti-neoliberal pointing out the faults of the neoliberal model, namely a select few determining the path of a country, which they have no relation to and no thought to the people on the ground. It is a very interesting study using fieldwork, interviews, photographs, correspondences, newspapers, websites, and archives. All and all it is a very good study using a variety of sources and writers to write against the often glorified American Corporation leading the betterment of the periphery.
