Who knows cassiterite, the "blood ore"? It is the main ore of tin. It is found everywhere, in our cell phones, radios, televisions. But at what price? In this book-investigation, in this police chase on several continents, Christophe Boltanski makes us follow - from the mines of North Kivu in the Congo, where African children go underground at the risk of their lives, to the towers of La Défense, where globalized companies claim to be unaware of the path taken by the minerals - the hazardous, dangerous thread that leads from the shadow to the light of our daily consumption.
From the Africa of forgotten wars to the London Stock Metal Exchange, from the factories of Malaysia to the open-air garbage dumps of Ghana, passing through Brussels and Paris, this is a true-life novel, fed by money, obscure influences, and politics. It shows the true face of post-colonialism.
