"A thousand Plateaus" deleuze, and guattari's work in particular. Another
book on Shamanism and (?) Colonialism looking into the economic
relationships of the rubber "merchants"-slave traders-hacienda owners and
indigenous magic. author and title escape me now, same press that put out
"theatre and terrorism" study. basic EZLN/FZLN communiques would be of
interest. early baudrillard on the economy of the sign.
note: who were the transnationalists of the ancient world? any good studies
on trade routes (pre-columbian), especially south america-mexico,
afghanistan, egypt-south, etc. the "psychology" of the buddhist
translator-monks who studied at vikramasila and nalanda, multi-lingual
processing and their abstraction into sacred text, via the syncretic.

is anyone working in mayan glyph decipherment or sanskrit?
