Rocks and Hard Places

The Globalization of Mining

By Roger Moody  

Paperback $19.95

The world of international mining is changing rapidly, with mining corporations encroaching on more and more Greenfield sites in Africa, the Asia-Pacific and Latin America. Moody shows that large-scale mining imposes a heavy toll on local communities, on their fragile economies and ways of life, as well as on the environment. He reveals the unprecedented wave of community and trade union opposition to projects in both the South and the North. He provides concrete proposals for the resolution of issues in a sector that has always stood at the gateway of North-South exploitation.
