bookshelves: africa, development, methods, philosophy, ipe, consumption

I read this for the relevant sections on the interplay between extractive industries, institutional legacies of social corporatism and the international economy (Chs 1 & 8).

Will come back to the rest later. Hints of some useful discussions about 'mimicry' in consumption (of both materials and ideas from the affluent West) in Chs 5 & 6.
