The book is intriguing and informative; mainly discussing the effects large corporations and multi nationals have on developing countries. The book discusses companies such as Nike, Apple, Shell etc. The book is comprised of old and or current groundbreaking articles written by investigative journalists. Schiffrin divides the book up into nine sections • Labor Abuses • Anticolonialism • Corruption • Oil and Mining • The Environment and Natural Disasters • Food Shortages and Famine • Military and Police • Rural Life • Women I really like how the book is broken down because you can focus your reading on sections more pertinent to your learning. You read a series of groundbreaking articles from Pulitzer prize winning journalists without feeling like you are out of the flow. It really gives perspective of certain power dynamics corporations and governments have on the developing world. My favorite article in the book is by Ken Saro – Wiwa “The Coming War in the Delta” which discusses Shell’s operation in Nigeria, specifically the Niger Delta river. There is an interesting take on development in the article, particularly regarding corporate social responsibility.
