More About Plunder by Ugo Mattei; Laura Nader
 
 
 
Overview
Plunder examines the dark side of the Rule of Law and explores how it has been used as a powerful political weapon by Western countries in order to legitimize plunder – the practice of violent extraction by stronger political actors victimizing weaker ones.
  • Challenges traditionally held beliefs in the sanctity of the Rule of Law by exposing its dark side
  • Examines the Rule of Law's relationship with 'plunder' – the practice of violent extraction by stronger political actors victimizing weaker ones – in the service of Western cultural and economic domination
  • Provides global examples of plunder: of oil in Iraq; of ideas in the form of Western patents and intellectual property rights imposed on weaker peoples; and of liberty in the United States
  • Dares to ask the paradoxical question – is the Rule of Law itself illegal?
