Abstract:

"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.
