Volume 33 (2018)
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF TRANSNATIONAL
CORPORATIONS IN THE GLOBAL SOUTH

Editors: Paul Cooney, Universidad Nacional de General Sarmiento, Argentina, and William Sacher Freslon, Universidad Andina Simón Bolívar, Ecuador

This volume explores the impact of Transnational Corporations (TNCs) on the environment of the Global South during this period of neoliberal globalization.

Since the end of the 1970s, the role of TNCs in the global economy has developed significantly, and the subsequent changes to international institutions and the establishment of free trade zones have limited the effectiveness of environmental protections. Drawing together contributions from several continents, this important book examines the environmental consequences and crises resulting from these changes. It highlights the negative impact on the environment, ecosystems and ways of living for many people across the globe and shows how this is reflected in the struggle between corporate interests, social movements and human rights.

Developing key themes around transnational extractive activity, especially mining and oil corporations; the impact of transnational capital on indigenous or traditional populations, and the role played by international institutions, Environmental Impacts of Transnational Corporations in the Global South is essential reading for researchers and practitioners within the field.

Statement of Purpose: This RESEARCH annual is founded on analyzing society in a manner consistent with the importance of the role of class. International in scope, the annual volumes deal primarily with economic and political issues and the unity between them. Both theoretical and empirical works are included. While published papers must be appropriate for developing class analysis of society, they need not be explicitly marxist. The RESEARCH can accept papers up to 20,000 and thus, in addition to usual journal length papers, is appropriate for work which is not book length, yet is substantial. For submissions, please send your paper, double-spaced type with noting as endnotes followed by a reference list, to the editor either electronically or three copies to the postal address above. Usual practice is review by two competent persons, on a double-blind basis, within a relatively short period of time.

"Collections like Research in Political Economy provide a forum for ...
serious radical scholarship so grotesquely absent from most mainstream
periodicals"
-- Richard B. DuBoff, Monthly Review

"... has played a very positive role in developing the scientific Marxist agenda"
-- Ajit Sinha, Science & Society
