I'm in the middle of this book, and it is very interesting. Was wondering if anyone here has read it, and what their thoughts were, especially pertaining to the "statist determinism" implied in chapter 14, "From Egalitarianism to Kleptocracy".
I found this article, and have begun to read it, but it hasn't yet addressed this position.
Past thread on this.
Saw that in search results, wasn't sure if the documentary went into as much social theory as the book.
Probably not. But the video is free and I had time to kill. And it was fun to watch.
