Episode 6: James Scott and ‘The Art of Not Being Governed’

Hosted by Dan and Yael, this episode features a two part presentation by Yale Professor, James Scott, on his book The Art of Not Being Governed: An Anarchist History of Upland Southeast Asia. Scott’s book is a critical documentation of the strategies employed by the people of Zomia to remain stateless. Scott challenges us with a radically different approach to history that presents events from the perspective of stateless peoples and redefines state-making as a form of “internal colonialism.” Along with the regular Indy Media Round-up segment, the show also included an reading excerpted from Fredy Perlman on nationalism and music from France, Portland and Argentina. Original air-date: 11-23-11.
