Reviews

It has been widely supposed that social scientists should restrict their attention to the surface of the Earth; as a result; they have had little to say about the Earth’s geology. This wonderful collection finally ends this odd silence and; in bringing the study of politics to the Earth’s depths; opens up a whole new venue of geographical and historical enquiry.” — Andrew Barry; Department of Geography; University College London; UK

Political Geology: Active Stratigraphies and the Making of Life is an inspiring and smart collection that includes some of the best writers on the topic. Don’t however be mistaken: it is not only about the solid ground beneath our feet; instead; the earth is moved as numbers; projects; calculations;; it haunts as colonial memories and as material dynamics. This ebook is one main collection that helps to outline the (geo)political stakes of the Anthropocene.” — Jussi Parikka; University of Southampton; creator of A Geology of Media

Whether the newest era in the history of our planet should be termed the Anthropocene has yet to be determined; but the following disputes have left no doubt that we live in an era of political geology. Controversies about climate change; resource use; and distinctions between the biological; geological and human have brought a new appreciation of the political dimensions of the Earth sciences. Stretching from Korea and India to Poland and Mexico; this extensive volume is vital reading for anyone who wishes to understand the part of the geosciences in recent debates.” — James A. Secord; Department of History and Philosophy of Science; University of Cambridge; UK
