New book by Mattei and Nader

Ugo Mattei (Hastings) and Laura Nader (Berkeley) have a powerful new book called Plunder: When the Rule of Law is Illegal available here.  It is a critical condemnation of the international rule of law as a tool of exploitation and neo-colonialism, making direct links between the earlier eras of international law as a "civilizing" discourse and contemporary law/development practice.  Like some of the work of Naomi Klein, it is a structural analysis in which only one side of the world has agency.    I'd be interested in any comments from readers.
