“La Batea” now available for Pre-Sale

From Red Hook Editions:

“A brother-and-sister team, Stephen and Elizabeth Ferry have produced La Batea: Impressions of Gold in Colombia, exploring gold’s double effects – situations of violence, contamination, and exploitation, but also of devotion, craftsmanship, and anchored communities. By taking this rounded approach, La Batea aims to contribute to the global debate over the social, political and environmental impacts of gold mining.”

This article follows up on an earlier piece published in the Alchemist, Gold and the Blockchain, by Charlie Morris. It gives an anthropologist’s view of the ways gold and Bitcoin are compared to each other and the current state of gold and blockchain technology, and includes follow-up interviews with several of the people discussed in Morris’s article.
