Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"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
