‘An easily read book illuminating the multifarious process of environmental degradation, as well as the motley social movements, especially on a grass-root level, resisting the privatisation of common resources and ecological degradation on both a local and global level.’ Capital & Class
Tackling the key themes – such as the convergence of environment and social justice, global commodities, and the role of social movements – the contributors draw on examples from the Amazon, Mexico, Cameroon, India and the industrialised North.
