Product Description

Review

"This carefully crafted ethnographic account affirms the deep and adverse footprint of market-based industrial production on contemporary human lives and communities. By exploring the personal experience of exposure to the toxic risk produced by irresponsible corporate actions in a contaminated community, Little tells the occupational and environment story of our times: deindustrialization has left behind doubly damaged communities but helped to spark hope-affirming grassroots activism. This book makes clear the contributions of anthropology to the framing of a political ecological theory of human-environmental relations."-Merrill Singer,University of Connecticut at Storrs

A tedious read, not well researched, self serving 20 April 2014
By Iknowaboutthis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I know about this situation and although Mr. Little makes some good points, his constant use of references in the text and academic terminology makes this a slog to read. Considering the population, his research is thin on data in that his conclusions are based on a very small number of interviews. He offers criticism but not much in the way of solutions. He constantly is referencing what his book is intended to do instead of letting the writing demonstrate his intent. It at times comes across as pompous and self serving in a way that is a disservice to the population he writes about.
