Nations and States

I'm just finishing The Distorted Past by Josep Fontana, a refreshing look at European history that questions notions of development as mechanical. He also introduces the idea of cultural ecology through social technology.

I recently read In Pursuit of the Right to Self-determination edited by Kly & Kly, which, if not naively hopeful, at least points in the right direction with some encouraging accounts from the Fourth World.

Lots more about the changing relations between nations and states in the Center for World Indigenous Studies online archives.
