About this book

Case studies written by anthropologists, geographers, political scientists, and sociologists provide empirical detail and analytical insight into states' and communities' relations to natural resource sectors, and show how resource dependencies continue to shape their political spaces.

Håvard Haarstad is a post-doctoral research fellow in the Department of Geography, University of Bergen, Norway.

Reviews

"A superb, genuinely interdisciplinary collection of essays underpinned by a commitment to social justice, this book offers a set of rigorous, theoretically-informed studies of governance within the vital natural resource sector in Latin America and makes a genuine contribution to debates about the Left and post-neoliberalism in the region. Very highly recommended indeed."

Jean Grugel, professor of International Development, University of Sheffield

'This book is a welcome addition to research on how social conflicts that arise from natural resource policies can be mitigated or avoided. With case studies from oil to post-neoliberalism, it provides an engaging and thought-provoking approach to the relationship between natural resources and socio-economic development in the region.'

David J. Keeling, department head and professor of Geography, Western Kentucky University
