Editorial Reviews


'This superb book builds on the illuminating contrast between the 'life projects' of indigenous people and the 'development projects' funded by global capital. 'Life projects' are about the right of any people to define the meaning of their life and their place in the cosmos. The book is filled with ambiguous but sometimes hopeful examples of indigenous peoples working with NGOs, governments, and corporations to defend their autonomy, and in the process shaping human rights and development agendas nationally and globally' - John H. Bodley, Professor of Anthropology, Washington State University, author of Victims of Progress (1999) and The Power of Scale (2003). 'A comprehensive account of relations between agents of globalization - corporations and states - and indigenous peoples worldwide. The book provides a unique synthesis of indigenous peoples' strategies of active resistance and approaches to living autonomously. It indicates lessons for us, both about the importance of supporting indigenous peoples who are at the front lines in this struggle, and for the ways we orient our own agency as we come to grips with similar forces.' - Michael Asch, University of Victoria, Canada
