Evil Paradises by Mike Davis
Book DescriptionEvil Paradises shows us the face of conspicuous consumption gone mad, exploring new developments that are being built from extreme global wealth. Although the case studies - which are drawn from around the world - read like science fiction, they are in fact all real. They include a gilded archipelago of private islands in Dubai and a two million acre private national park owned by Ted Turner. With an introduction by Mike Davis and contributions from Rebecca Solnit, Jon Wiener and others, this collection reveals the dark side of modern capitalism and the current building boom.
