WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Mike Daisey tells the true-life story of his time on a remote South Pacific island whose inhabitants worship America. There he lived with the cult, hunted feral pigs beneath the erupting volcano of Mount Yasur, and learned of the islanders' stories of belief, faith, and sympathetic magic. Part adventure story and part memoir, The Last Cargo Cult weaves these stories with a searing examination of the international financial crisis. From the belief in the infallibility of markets to the ultimate achievement in sympathetic magic--money--Daisey wrestles with what the collapse says about our deepest values. He uses each culture to illuminate the other to find--between the seemingly primitive and the achingly modern--a human answer.
