    Default Wittfogel

    I am currently reading Wittfogel's Oriental Despotism. Is anyone familiar with it?

    Yes indeed. I've recommended it a few times.

    Whoever attempts to play the magistrate there founders on the laughter of the Gods."

    Nice, well I finally found the opportunity. A course on the interrelationship between development, growth and distribution. We've covered a wide range of literature from stadnard neoclassical texts to poststructuralism to Neo-Marxism and everything in between. I chose Wittfogel's work to present in the coming semester. I'm very much enjoying what I've read so far.

    He apparently had few fans in the USSR.

    As is customary these days, I can't find the book. Damn Gutenberg!
