Narrator Joe Barrett has no trouble interpreting the political abstractions and complex sentences that fill this esoteric audiobook. Delivered with his educated enunciation and measured pacing, his narration conveys intellectual confidence, which gives this material authority commensurate with its far-reaching message. The audio is a graduate-level course in economic and political history that explains how capitalism developed as a paradigm of human exchange and how its champions have tried to create international institutions that are more powerful than the shifting interests of individual nations. The narratives of behind-the-scenes struggles between social, democratic, and economic interests are riveting. With Barrett's grasp of these dynamics and his connection with his listeners, he makes the theoretical debates and political intrigue come to life while helping the author shed light on current-day controversies.
