“The book is well-designed and well-situated within the literature … It will provide a valuable comparative resource on two aspects of mining less frequently discussed – the comparisons across space and time and the post-mining context.” • Elizabeth Ferry, Brandeis University
Resource extraction exists in diverse settings across the world and is carried out through different practices. The Global Life of Mines provides a comprehensive framework examining the spatial and temporal relationships between mining and postmining as interrelated and coexisting features within the global minescape. The book brings together scholars from various fields, such as anthropology, geography, sociology and political science, examining ethnographic case studies throughout the Americas (Bolivia, Brazil, Peru, USA), Africa (Democratic Republic of Congo) and Europe (Italy, Arctic Norway and Spain).
