    If you were to recommend just one book by Mr. Perdue, which one would it be?

      The Node is the one I would recommend first, although The New Austerities is my personal favorite.

        The New Austerities is my favorite of his too. I’m disappointed I didn’t get to attend the event in Atlanta. I was looking forward to it.

    ”We’re sorry. You’ve requested more of The New Austerities, than the 1 available from the seller you’ve selected. Click here to return to the product detail page and see if additional quantities are available from another seller. ”

    Cant seem to get it from the US unless I buy second hand. Why?
    Will consider other ways..

        Indeed. Alhough * prefer bnot to use Paypal.

        Thank you for the opportunity to listen to this interview, it was most interesting, inspireing and much appreciated. Indeed, the mention of Node haveing in aspect the idea of Inter/National Netwerking as part of its narrative, reminds me of an idea I floated a while back , with s similar idea. I may have been channeling Mr Perdue.
