Review

"In Oil Injustice, Widener skillfully exposes the global political economy as a bully that systematically and strategically exploits both the world's natural resources and its poorest citizens. Seemingly beyond reproach 'the fight continues' as a latter day David and Goliath struggle by local and transnational activists to effect systemic change."—Julian Agyeman, Tufts University; author of Sustainable Communities and the Challenge of Environmental Justice

(Julian Agyeman, Tufts University)

From Ecuador to China to multinational companies to indigenous mobilization, Dr. Widener offers a fascinating, comprehensive and sobering account of the complex transnational politics of oil in the 21st century. (Sanjeev Khagram, University of Washington; co-author of The Transnational Studies Reader)

In this nuanced and highly insightful book, Patricia Widener demonstrates the critical value of bringing a multi-scalar approach to the study of environmental justice conflicts. From Ecuador to the U.S. and China, she carefully examines the contradictory and sometimes maddening local, national, and global dimensions of oil politics. She forcefully contends that neither capitalism, socialism, nor global North environmentalists are capable of securing a sustainable future for the Earth and humanity. Those global South communities most affected by oil injustice must lead the fight toward a post-petroleum economy. The rest of us can either get on board or get out of the way. (David Naguib Pellow, Don Martindale Professor of Sociology, University of Minnesota)
