Earliest work on this topic

1995 Co-authored with John Rodgers, “On Discourses and Social Movements: Traversing the First World/Third World Development Divide” Journal of Developing Societies XI.1: 74-97.  This was my first journal article, and you can see Naming the Enemy coming. In fact, Naming was conceived with John, but he decided not to stick around the academy to write a dissertation himself so he left me with full responsibility.

1998 “Sustainability Update”, February 1998 written for the Z Magazine community but not accepted for publication. resubmitted to Dollars & Sense, not accepted.
