Routledge Handbook of Global Land and Resource Grabbing

«

"Assembling a rich and diverse set of scholarly contributions, the handbook reviews what we know about land grabbing and identifies fresh lines of inquiry. It is an excellent resource for scholars and activists."

Tania Murray Li, Professor of Anthropology, University of Toronto

"An indispensable read, this handbook demonstrates that land and resource grabbing is much more than a sudden fever of corporate investment. It is a fundamental trait of contemporary capitalism."

Jacobo Grajales, Professor of Political Science, Université de Lille, author of 'Agrarian Capitalism, War and Peace in Colombia. Beyond Dispossession'

"The geographic scope – from the Arctic to sub-Saharan Africa, Brazil, Aotearoa New Zealand and a multitude of places in between – and the hugely diverse range of sectors, settings and actors mark this as the most comprehensive and nuanced examination of the 'global land grab' phenomena to date. The volume expands the temporal and sectoral boundaries of this ‘grabbing’ from colonial resource frontiers, into the ocean (‘blue-grabbing’) and urban environments and across arenas that include renewable energy, tourism and conservation (‘green-grabs’). Along with the important conceptual work here – from the emotional geographies of green grabs to the construction of governance processes that facilitate ‘grabbing’ – the volume represents a significant step-change in academic attention towards and understanding of land and resource grabs."

Glenn Banks, Professor of Geography, School of People, Environment and Planning, Massey University, Aotearoa

"While much has been written on the so-called 'global land grab' since the mid-2000s, there has to date been no authoritative resource on the issue. This volume admirable fills that gap, providing a comprehensive account that is both global in scope and replete with local case studies; that is historically informed and yet entirely contemporary in its coverage; and that is richly conceptualized and yet always grounded in real world examples. This will be a go-to resource for many years to come, not only for students and researchers but also for activists, policy makers and practitioners in the field of land and natural resource governance."

Philip Hirsch, Emeritus Professor of Human Geography, University of Sydney

"This impressive and clearly-written volume provides remarkably wide-ranging coverage of the objects, places, protagonists, narratives, technologies, causes, and institutions of 21st century land and resource grabbing. It illuminates the present while emphasizing the long histories of dispossession and resistance that shape, and are continued in, contemporary struggles. Recommended for beginners and experts alike."

Derek Hall, Associate Professor, Political Science and Balsillie School of International Affairs, Wilfried Laurier University
