about this item

Despite the odds, grassroots movements can pose serious challenges to both governments and corporations. Grassroots actors possess a variety of motivations, and their visions of development may evolve in complex ways. Meanwhile, their relative powerlessness obliges them to forge an array of shifting alliances and innovate a range of adaptive strategies.

This book presents a compilation of in-depth, ethnographic case studies, based in original research. All the chapters focus specifically on grassroots engagements with the agents of various forms of industrial development, and are also geographically diverse, including analyses of groups based in both the global North and South, and represent a range of disciplinary perspectives. This allows the collection to explore themes that cross-cut specific localities and disciplinary boundaries, and thus to generate important theoretical insights into the complexities of grassroots engagements with industry.

Drawing upon a range of theoretical perspectives, this volume will be of great interest to scholars of environmental activism, environmental governance and environmental studies in general.
