APHORISMS FOR ANARCHISTS. “Alternately insightful, inciteful, and insulting, Scott makes an idiosyncratically intellectual case that technocratic elites aren’t to be trusted, and insubordination is a virtue to be cherished. Needless to say, Scott is the Sterling Professor of Political Science at Yale.”

James C. Scott is also the author of the excellent Seeing Like A State: How Certain Schemes To Improve The Human Condition Have Failed. I just downloaded a copy of his Two Cheers for Anarchism to my Kindle.
