Subterranean struggles : new dynamics of mining, oil, and gas in Latin America by Anthony Bebbington( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this analysis, more than a dozen experts explore the many facets of struggles surrounding extraction, from protests in the vicinity of extractive operations to the everyday efforts of excluded residents who try to adapt their livelihoods while industries profoundly impact their living spaces. The book explores the implications of extractive industry for ideas of nature, region, and nation; 'resource nationalism' and environmental governance; conservation, territory, and indigenous livelihoods in the Amazon and Andes; everyday life and livelihood in areas affected by small- and large-scale mining alike; and overall patterns of social mobilization across the region. Arguing that such struggles are an integral part of the new extractive economy in Latin America, the authors document the increasingly conflictive character of these interactions, raising important challenges for theory (how to bring the subsoil into political ecology and the social sciences), for policy (how to govern extractive industry). and for social research methodologies (how to conduct research on such contentious issues). Featuring works by social and natural science authors, this collection offers a broad synthesis of the dynamics of extractive industry whose relevance stretches to regions beyond Latin America."--Back cover
Can NGOs make a difference? : the challenge of development alternatives by Anthony Bebbington( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can non-governmental organisations contribute to more socially just, alternative forms of development or are they destined to work at the margins of dominant development models determined by others? This book provides a comprehensive update to the NGO literature and a range of critical new directions to thinking and acting around the challenge of development alternatives. The book's originality comes from the wide-range of new case-study material it presents, the conceptual approaches it offers for thinking about development alternatives, and the practical suggestions for NGOs. At the heart of this book is the argument that NGOs can and must re-engage with the project of seeking alternative development futures for the world's poorest and more marginal. This will require clearer analysis of the contemporary problems of uneven development, and a clear understanding of the types of alliances NGOs need to construct with other actors in civil society if they are to mount a credible challenge to disempowering processes of economic, social and political development
Reluctant partners? : non-governmental organizations, the state and sustainable agricultural development by John Farrington( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reluctant Partners? combines comprehensive empirical insights into NGOs' work in agriculture with wider considerations of their relations with the State and their contribution to democratic pluralism. This overview volume for the Non-Governmental Organizations series contextualizes and synthesizes the case study material in the three regional volumes on Africa, Asia and Latin America, where over sixty specially commissioned case studies of farmer-participatory approaches to agricultural innovation are presented. Specific questions are raised. How good/bad are NGOs at promoting technological innovation and addressing contraints to change in peasant culture? How effective are NGOs at strengthening local organizations? How do/will donor pressures influence NGOs and their links to the State?

Social conflict, economic development and the extractive industry : evidence from South America by Anthony Bebbington( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The extraction of minerals, oil and gas has a long and ambiguous history in development processes -- in North America, Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia and Australasia. Extraction has yielded wealth, regional identities and in some cases capital for industrialisation. In other cases its main heritages have been social conflict, environmental damage and underperforming national economies. As the extractive economy has entered another boom period over the last decade, not least in Latin America, the countries with which this boom is occurring are challenged to interpret this ambiguity. Will the extractive industry yield, for them, economic development, or will its main gifts be ones of conflict, degradation and unequal forms of growth? This book speaks directly to this question and to the different ways in which Latin American countries are responding to the challenge of extractive industry ... The book makes clear the immense difficulties that countries and regional societies face in harnessing extractive industry for the collective good. For the most part the findings question the wisdom of the development model that many countries in the region have taken up and which emphasizes the productive roles of mining and hydrocarbon industries. The book should be of interest to students and researchers of Developmental Studies, Geography, Politics and Political Economy, as well as Anthropology."--Provided by publisher
