Water, power and technology
Agua, poder y tecnología
This book reveals the intimate connections between water, megaprojects and power relations on the Ecuadorian coast. With great intellectual capacity and investigative precision, the author examines the design and implementation processes of three mega-works of water. Beyond removing the mask of bureaucratic and neoliberal power games, the empirical and conceptual search lets us see the subtle struggles and strategies of social resistance. Marginalized families and affected communities demand environmental justice and a dignified life. This magnificent book is of great interest to teachers, researchers, and students of political ecology, critical geography, development policy, and rural studies.
