Here is the tale of one anthropologist's attempt to defend a small traditional society from the onslaught of development in the form of a 1,000-mile highway in western Brazil, financed in part by the World Bank. Before the Bulldozer shows how bureaucratic processes that occur in Washington can destroy vast tracts of fragile land and bring misery to thousands.
