Western society moved from a period in which Christianity was the dominant spiritual force to one of nationalism and then to making the economy the object of public devotion. Today this is challenged by those seeking the health of the Earth including all its inhabitants. The World Bank is the economistic institution most open to Earthist concerns. This book evaluates the Bank's potential for leadership in broadening public goals from narrowly economic goods to inclusive ones.
'...a stimulating and lucid analysis of the domination of neo-liberal economic ideology in global politics, tellingly explored through a study of the Brettton Woods institutions and in particular the World Bank.' Mike Watson, Political Studies
