New Political Spaces in Latin American Natural Resource Governance takes a new look at an essential theme for Latin America's social and economic development: how natural resources are governed and struggled over. It questions the idea that the governance now can be characterized as 'post-neoliberal' and illustrates the enduring constraints on democratic and 'just' resource extraction. Case studies written by anthropologists, geographers, and sociologists provide empirical detail and analytical insight into states' and communities' relations to natural resource sectors, and show how resource dependencies continue to shape their political spaces.
