“I’m writing because I’m hoping the people who read it don’t need dollops of hope or good endings but are reading so that they’ll know what to fight, and fight even when the fight seems hopeless.” – Mike Davis

Mike Davis’ City of Quartz changed my understanding of what power, policing, and “criminality” were when I read it 30 years ago. It’s one of the many reasons I ended up leaving economics.

Tariq Ali has a remembrance of him (where I found the above quote) at Verso Books’ web site.
