Book Description :

Climate Crisis, Energy Violence, and Environmental Racism communicates the extremity, breadth and extent of energy violence across energy sources, sectors and geographies. The work accommodates structural, ecological, institutional, physical and economic forms of energy violence, exploring the field through novel research methods and data sources, including the use of comparative homicide and repression databases, the analysis of hotspots and sacrifice zone analysis, and systematic representations of the full continuum of violence. The work is accompanied by comprehensive case studies drawn from global examples, including coal mining, oil production, hydraulic fracturing, biofuels, hydroelectric dams and solar panel construction. By framing the work in the context of violence, and in particular the use of metrics, the book provides a compelling and engaging argument for energy justice. Analyzes energy violence in an accessible and common-sense theoretical framework grounded in ecology, ethics and human rights Explores energy violence across multiple sources, sectors and geographies Interrogates quantifiable structural violence through homicide and repression databases

Book Description :

The Routledge Handbook of Latin American Development seeks to engage with comprehensive, contemporary, and critical theoretical debates on Latin American development. The volume draws on contributions from across the humanities and social sciences and, unlike earlier volumes of this kind, explicitly highlights the disruptions to the field being brought by a range of anti-capitalist, decolonial, feminist, and ontological intellectual contributions. The chapters consider in depth the harms and suffering caused by various oppressive forces, as well as the creative and often revolutionary ways in which ordinary Latin Americans resist, fight back, and work to construct development defined broadly as the struggle for a better and more dignified life. The book covers many key themes including development policy and practice; neoliberalism and its aftermath; the role played by social movements in cities and rural areas; the politics of water, oil, and other environmental resources; indigenous and Afro-descendant rights; and the struggles for gender equality. With contributions from authors working in Latin America, the US and Canada, Europe, and New Zealand at a range of universities and other organizations, the handbook is an invaluable resource for students and teachers in development studies, Latin American studies, cultural studies, human geography, anthropology, sociology, political science, and economics, as well as for activists and development practitioners.

Book Description :

Severe droughts, damaging floods and mass migration: Climate change is becoming a focal point for security and conflict research and a challenge for the world’s governance structures. But how severe are the security risks and conflict potentials of climate change? Could global warming trigger a sequence of events leading to economic decline, social unrest and political instability? What are the causal relationships between resource scarcity and violent conflict? This book brings together international experts to explore these questions using in-depth case studies from around the world. Furthermore, the authors discuss strategies, institutions and cooperative approaches to stabilize the climate-society interaction.

Book Description :

This impressive collection of original essays explores the relationship between social conflict and the environment - a topic that has received little attention within criminology. The chapters provide a systematic and comprehensive introduction and overview of conflict situations stemming from human exploitation of environments, as well as the impact of social conflicts on the wellbeing and health of specific species and ecosystems. Largely informed by green criminology perspectives, the chapters in the book are intended to stimulate new understandings of the relationships between humans and nature through critical evaluation of environmental destruction and degradation associated with social conflicts occurring around the world. With a goal of creating a typology of environment-social conflict relationships useful for green criminological research, this study is essential reading for scholars and academics in criminology, as well as those interested in crime, law and justice.

Book Description :

As climate change has increasingly become the main focus of environmentalist activism since the late 1990s, the global economic drivers of CO2 emissions are now a major concern for radical greens. In turn, the emphasis on connected crises in both natural and social systems has attracted more activists to the Climate Justice movement and created a common cause between activists from the Global South and North. In the absence of a pervasive narrative of transnational or socialist economic planning to prevent catastrophic climate change, these activists have been eager to engage with advanced knowledge and ideas on political and economic structures that diminish risks and allow for new climate agency. This book breaks new ground by investigating what kind of economy the Climate Justice movement is calling for us to build and how the struggle for economic change has unfolded so far. Examining ecological debt, just transition, indigenous ecologies, social ecology, community economies and divestment among other topics, the authors provide a critical assessment and a common ground for future debate on economic innovation via social mobilization. Taking a transdisciplinary approach that synthesizes political economy, history, theory and ethnography, this volume will be of great interest to students and scholars of climate justice, environmental politics and policy, environmental economics and sustainable development.

Book Description :

"People acting as a strong, cohesive community can achieve more than individuals. When people work together in community, strategies for change that are sustainable are possible. When people identify with their community, they want to see it survive, which encourages a long-term perspective. The alternative, when instead of seeking community, people engage in individualistic, self-seeking behavior, forms a vicious circle that leads to greed, violence, and crime. The stubborn persistence of violence in the United States and throughout the world is related to a loss of community. This is the case whether we are talking about the United States, Bosnia, Rwanda, Palestine, or anywhere else where violence is endemic. When violence is an expression of powerlessness, isolation, and exclusion, participatory community development from the bottom up has the potential to counter it. Community development at the grassroots level taps into and builds the integrity and leadership of members of the community and has the potential to break the cycle of violence. Social workers must become involved with communities at this level by learning from them and allowing themselves to be influenced and changed by them. The National Association of Social Workers is committed to bringing a deeper analysis and more lasting solutions to the crisis of violence facing many U.S. communities. We are committed to exploring new paradigms and models in community building and violence prevention. The Global Crisis of Violence: Common Problems, Universal Causes, Shared Solutions is a valuable contribution to this commitment. It expands the context within which the social work profession addresses violence and its attendant problems. It reflects NASW's investment in training social workers to be better informed and more sensitive "global professionals" so that they might develop more effective strategies for reducing violence through promoting development. It highlights homegrown strategies to address violence so that social workers can learn about what works and why. Finally, it makes clear social work's and NASW's appreciation for the increasingly cross-border nature of the systemic problems that give rise to violence by expanding the search for solutions to our social problems beyond U.S. borders. It is anticipated that faculty, students, and practitioners who read this book will be stimulated to stretch their understanding about violence and its relationship to development, renew their commitment to community practice, and expand their global consciousness." - Josephine Nieves, MSW, PhD, Executive Director, National Association of Social Workers
