Here’s my paper on mining and ethics from the Overheating conference in Norway

May 7, 2015

I was delighted to be a participant at the conference Mining Encounters: Extractive Industries In An Overheated World hosted by the formidable Robert Pipers and Thomas Hylland Eriksen in late April. You can find the full text of my paper for the conference, Cause and Effect: Who Is Responsible For Porgera at my page, amongst other places.

When I have  it in an academic repository I’ll throw up that link as well. Thanks for taking the time to take a look at it!

Errata for “Leviathans at the Gold Mine”

August 27, 2014

I’m very excited that my book Leviathans at the Gold Mine is now available and I’m proud of the books quality and content. However, no work is perfect. This blog post contains errata for the book. I’ll update it steadily over time.

Errata for Leviathans at the Gold Mine

p. xiv “Albin Bensa” should read “Alban Bensa.” I particularly regret this error given the generosity and warmth with which M. Bensa hosted me in Paris, and I thank him again — with his name spelled correctly! — here.
