Abstract

journal of world history, september 2007 from the fact of the commodity chain's existence, failing to interrogate the historical process of commodification itself. Every commodity addressed in the volume retained local values and significance apart from the global capitalist marketplace. Yet, here the commodity chain methodology defines "benefit" exclusively through global capital's own criteria of measurement. These scholars offer an alternative model to that of the dependency theorists who applied a Marxist analysis to the structural inequities built into the distribution of surplus capital derived from the exploitation of Latin America's resources. Some one hundred years earlier, Marx wrote about the dangers of the commodity fetish. In attempting to challenge tendencies toward economic determinism, the contributors seem to naturalize, rather than provide a framework for questioning, the economic system that transformed the earth and human labor into sellable objects to begin with. suzanna reiss University of Hawai`i at Mänoa Trickster Travels: A Sixteenth-Century Muslim between Worlds. By natalie zemon davis. New York: Hill and Wang, 2006. 448 pp. $17.00 (paper). Hasan al-Wazzan was born in Granada around 1486.
