Kurzbeschreibung des Verlags:

This book analyzes the recent development paths pursued by progressive
governments in Argentina and Brazil, namely deindustrialization and
reprimarization, and the social and environmental consequences thereof. A key
part of understanding the trajectories in both Argentina and Brazil has been the
role played by international institutions, especially the IMF and WTO, and also,
the ever-growing hegemony of transnational corporations in the global economy
and as a result, significantly limiting the possibilities of genuine development for
local populations.
 Two major issues which extend beyond Latin America are: the expansion of
genetically modified crops and agrotoxics and the concern for global food security
and sovereignty; second, how reprimarization, associated with mining, cattle, soy
and petroleum, has been key in leading to the risk of desertification in the
Argentine pampas and also causing deforestation in the Amazon Rain forest,
described as the lungs of the planet, and thus has major implications for climate
change for the planet as a whole.
In addition, this book engages with a number of theoretical issues: development
and dependency in the periphery: neoliberal globalization, accumulation bydispossession, ecological and environmental debates and the role of extractivism
and rent. This book is aimed for both academics, activists and those politically
motivated to analyze, understand and push for social change from a critical
perspective, and also, those interested in a radical analysis of paths of
development, dependency and socioenvironmental issues in Latin America
