    2. Mitchell is one of the most *useful* Foucault-influenced scholars that I have read, because he steeps his arguments in history and political economy. This series of essays is no different. Nevertheless, like Tania Murray Li (The Will to Improve), James Ferguson (The Anti-Politics Machine), Beatrice Hibou (The Force of Obedience) and others, Mitchell in the end sometimes moves too much toward what I call "structuralist post-structuralism" whereby things happen more as unintended consequences rath [...]

    6. The best aspect of this is Mitchell’s tracing of the complex ways in which governmental (often developmental) interventions take shape through a variety of agencies, and the extremely broad range of mitigating, contingent factors they encounter as they unfold. Chapters 1 and 3 exemplify this approach. Chapter 7 is a decent case study of Egypt as it has been envisioned by developers, providing an object lesson in the many criticisms of international economic development (most of which have been [...]

    7. Wow. Who would expect this???! For me the first two parts (especially the first couple of chapters) were eye-opening. I am inspired by his argument of the bifurcation of the world in modernity --- reminds me of Giddens' "consequences of modernity" in that we always "trust" the system but we really don't know how it works. "Colonial relationship" is only one element in his story of Egypt -- just an enforcer of these processes.

    8. Truly amazing book by Mitchell. HE narrates the emergence of a modern class of technocrats in Egypt and traces the interaction of environment, foreign policy, and local politics to explain the changes in the constitution of Egyptian society under the influence of modernity and colonialism. I particularly liked the section on the failure of the Aswan damn and the slew of unexpected collateral effects that it creates.

    9. Interesting history of how something taken for granted as natural and pre-existing, "the economy" (in the macroeconomic sense), actually was created in egypt through acts of violence (creating and enforcing particular schemes of private property) and transnational experts applying "universal" social scientific principles. Heavy hitting theory implications and might have some intimidating theory speak in the conclusions of each chapter, but the histories themselves are quite readable.

    10. One of the most insightful and fascinating books I have ever read.

    11. For all of Mitchell's daunting rep, my undergrads actually kind of dug this. An angry book that doesn't seem angry at first.

    12. Timothy Mitchell’s Rule of Experts tackles many different, though related, issues in the study of the Egyptian countryside, all of which are unified by the theme of adding complexity to matters that have been examined previously, but in ways that the author finds incomplete or insufficient. Most importantly, he argues that the economy is neither a social construction nor a new way of describing something that has always existed, but a cultural representation of something that has a material re [...]

    15. Mitchell is one of the best history writers out there, and this is seriously one of the best history books I've read, if not the best. Truthfully, the title sums the book up in a way I can't: Egypt, techno-politics, and modernity. If you like any of those topics, you'll freak out over this book. There's not a clunker in this book, they're all riveting in their own way. Broadly, the book discusses "the relationship between expertise and the world to which it refers-- a world that, on closer inspe [...]

    16. A graduate sociological theory course could look very different (and rather unsettling) if non-canonical strands of social theory were introduced. Here's what Timothy Mitchell has to say about the postcolonial tradition (which is sometimes confused with the postmodern): "It refers to forms of critical practice that address the significance of colonialism in the formation and practice of social theory. Colonialism, from this perspective, was not incidental to the development of the modern West, n [...]

    17. I am not a researcher in this field, so my review is written for the curious non-specialist. Parts of this book are very esoteric (as the title suggests). A few of the more theoretical paragraphs were undecipherable to me, but the majority of the book was challenging but readable. I found this book after reading Seeing Like a State: How Certain Schemes to Improve the Human Condition Have Failed, and I think both fill the important role of reintroducing the complexity of reality into our simplifi [...]

    18. It's clear the author has an amazing grasp of Egyptian history, and it's a joy to read about issues and events affecting the poor and disenfranchised that are rarely explored. At the same time, this is not easy reading. It's very dense and complicated - I think you'd need a PhD in cultural theory and semiotics and another in Middle East history to fully understand everything, which makes it very hard to put down in the middle of an essay and pick up a day or two later. As a reader who likes to s [...]

    19. Mind-blowing for someone trying to think about cultural political economy. Mitchell is seamless in incorporating nature, culture, and political economy into a tale not only about Egypt but also about global capitalism. He is a bit posty for my tastes and I have only read the first 120 pages or so (life got in the way), but I have marked he and his thinking as something I will have to understand and come to terms with.

    20. An innovative take on the history of the modern world in eight interlocking essays about Egypt in the 20th century which deal with everything from land surveys to the plagiarisms of mid-century anthropology to a history of the Aswan Dam from the perspective of a mosquito. This book challenges traditional ways of talking about history by de-emphasizing human agency and focusing on the formative power of knowledge practices and technology.

    21. Mosquitoes can speak. Timothy Mitchell's "Rule of Experts" is a ground breaking analysis on the creation of the contemporary Egyptian state through a failed colonialism which left with the the failing of it's 'development.' Chapters 4 and 6, which focus on the peasant during transitory times, highlight the inability of the state to feed itself, the message of chapter 7.

    22. I liked the first part, was bored by the second part, and distracted while reading the third part. Still, enjoyed it overall. I imagine I will keep thinking back to this one for a while.

    23. I would dismiss Mitchell as a conspiracy theorist if it weren't for the wealth of data he presents to substantiate his claims. Absolutely one of the best books i've read in a long, long time.
