Critical Commentary

"Focusing on moments in which contests over ecology become moments for rethinking the ecology of knowledge, the papers in this volume engage contests over nature in a wide variety of settings, from urban Cape Town and indigenous activism in Peru to Mugabe's Zimbabwe and the Benguela ecosystem fisheries and protected areas in Aboriginal territories of northern Australia. The contributors to this book have been part of an 18-month-long research project that explores contests over ecologies in Southern Africa, Latin America, and Australia. The product of three writing workshops over that period and two visits by each of the international writers, the book sets up a wonderfully rich dialogue across the global south."
