For nearly three centuries the spectacular rise and fall of the South Sea Company has gripped the public imagination as the most graphic warning to investors of the dangers of unbridled speculation. Yet history repeats itself and the same elemental forces that drove up the price of South Sea shares to dizzying heights in 1720 have in recent years produced the global crash of 1987, the Japanese stock market bubble of the 1980s/90s, and the international dot.com boom of the 1990

Cultural Writing. Politics. Environmentalism. POLITICAL ECOSYSTEMS is a highly original text that argues those of us who are left-progressives and environmentalists need to engage in rigorous self-examination, better assessing their political strengths and weaknesses, if they ever hope to achieve our goals. Harpignies argues left/progressives must cultivate more sophisticated ways of looking at the culture, by addressing little-discussed, but very real divides-from the communitarian/libertarian dichotomy to that of techno-utopians and neo-Luddites. This thoroughly researched yet accessible book is

Nowadays remembered mostly through Adam Smith’s references to the short-lived Ayr Bank in the Wealth of Nations, the 1772-3 financial crisis was an important historical episode in its own right, taking place during a pivotal period in the development of financial capitalism and coinciding with the start of the traditional industrialisation narrative.

Using official documents recently made public, evidence gathered by the Australian government's Royal Commission of Inquiry into the tests, and her own experience as an investigative journalist, Joan Smith argues forcefully that the bomb
