Who Speaks for Nature?

Indigenous Movements, Public Opinion, and the Petro-State in Ecuador

Todd A. Eisenstadt and Karleen Jones West

Studies in Comparative Energy and Environmental Politics

  • The most methodologically rigorous book on "comparative environmental politics" in any single nation to date
  • Juxtaposes arguments of vulnerability with post-materialist and ethnic politics claims
  • Provides a national survey and hundreds of ethnographic interviews
  • Argues that stakeholders' sense of vulnerability to environmental degradation matters more than their political/ideological predispositions or ethnic identities, thus providing greater opportunities for activists to unite across political and ethnic lines
