Descriptions du produit

Slow Violence and the Environmentalism of the Poor "Slow violence" from climate change, toxic drift, deforestation, oil spills, and the environmental aftermath of war takes place gradually and often invisibly. The author focuses on the inattention we have paid to the lethality of many environmental crises, in contrast with the sensational, spectacle-driven messaging that impels public activism.

The sooner you read this book, the sooner the revolution can begin 17 avril 2013

This book has transformed the way in which I think about and work within the realm of environmental inequality. Nixon's original concepts (starting with the concept of "slow violence") ring loud and true and he conveys them with beauty and power. He draws from diverse thinkers and mind-blowing history. Environmental injustices are so sprawling, convoluted, and abysmal -- from waste to water to air to war to soil to toxins to climate change -- that they can be overwhelming and difficult to internalize in an organized way. Nixon has provided me with a loom that I can use to structure all these loose threads of feelings I could never quite articulate and knowledge I could never quite emote.

If you consider yourself an "environmentalist," this must be the next book in your queue. No way around it. If you don't consider yourself an "environmentalist," this book will teach you why that label is just an unnecessary facade; you don't need to be one to understand history, facts, injustice, and truth.

This is a revolutionary work and the sooner we all read it, the closer we are to the revolution.
A go-to and book shelf must! 22 avril 2015

Big thanks to Rob Nixon for putting this work out there! It is a critical read for anyone interested in the environment, and a leading text in the developing field of Environmental Humanities. It is even better read the second time, encouraging long term thought towards issues in the Global South and motivation for those interested in environmental activism. It will change the way you think about scale and environmentalism, hopefully much more.

Slow Violence is accessible, and applicable to a host of other environmental issues - this book is highly influential to my thesis work.

Important book, but needs slimming 10 février 2014
Par hh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an important book. It makes one think differently about key issues of environmentalism -- pulling one out of the micro and forcing a macro view. Sadly, it will be read by many fewer people than it deserves. The fault of the book is the overwriting. The prose is beautiful, but there is simply too much wrapping paper around the gift.

The Lexicon of War 25 avril 2013
Par Luz Baez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Language is the way in which humans communicate, socialize and identify with each other. The nuances associated with understanding the spoken or written word is dependent on mutual experiences, interpretation or socialization. In order to effectively communicate it is necessary to understand the manner in which words are used. People give meaning to the words readily used and applied in our interactions within our culture, communities and schools. What happens if the definition changes?
Rob Nixon, in Slow violence and the Environmentalism of the Poor, illustrates for the readers the confusion generated as the working definition of everyday common language become weapons of mass destruction. The slow generative destruction of the environment and the people.
