Fordlandia, by Greg Grandin

Categorized in:

A fascinating examination of Henry Ford and his attempts to impose his systems on the Amazon. Really an examination of how Ford destroyed the pastoral world he valued and didn’t have the self-awareness to see it. It also reveals Ford as a crackpot who got one thing right and hardly anything else.
