An in-depth global review of land resource resource grabbing is both timely and essential reading. The great thing about this Routledge Handbook is that it is not locked away behind a prohibitively expensive paywall. This open access handbook edited by Andreas Neef, Chanrith Ngin, Tsegaye Moreda and Sharlene Mollett provides a cutting-edge and comprehensive analysis of the many forces driving global land and resource grabbing.
The Routledge Handbook of Global Land and Resource Grabbing provides fresh methodological, theoretical and empirical insights. It presents and discusses resource grabbing research in a holistic manner by addressing how the rush for land and other natural resources, including water, forests and minerals, is intertwined with agriculture, mining, tourism, energy, biodiversity conservation, climate change, carbon markets and conflict.
The handbook is truly global and interdisciplinary, with case studies from the Global South and Global North, and chapter contributions from practitioners, activists and academics, with emerging and Indigenous authors featuring strongly across the chapters.
The handbook will be essential reading for students and scholars interested in land and resource grabbing, agrarian studies, development studies, critical human geography, global studies and natural resource governance.
