    This is an excellent book It clearly details the recent history of neo liberalism and its effect on the world particularly via the examples of Cape Breton and Columbia Various parallels between the two are explored and alternatives to Neo Liberalism are discussed I particularly liked the authors' history of unions in the Sydney area and the current situation in Columbia and how it is basically undergoing the crappy parts of industrialization Very informative book from a local perspective written by CBU profs and associates with real life experience in both CB and Columbia
