This is without doubt a thought-provoking book for students of politics and international affairs. ... This book will be instructive to political scientists and sociologists because it raises awkward questions on the complexity of identity and the culture underneath the grand theories of political behaviour in the modern world, there remains the need to understand why people are willing to purchase objects with little or no monetary value, above and beyond the symbolic, artistic or affective quality they are believed to possess. This is a book to savour, not devour. -- Patrick Chabal * INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS *
