David Price, Author Seven Locks Press $17.95 (224p) ISBN 978-0-932020-92-5
When the World Bank was considering a $425 million loan to Brazil to construct a thousand-mile highway across the country, social anthropologist Price was hired as a consultant. Price's advice was ignored by the World Bank and Brazil, and he relates here events that led to a major ecological disaster in the Third World. ``This is a tale of corruption, racism and bureaucratic blindness,'' noted PW . ``A tragic story.''
