Property, Territory, Globalization

UBC Press | January 1, 2012 | 288 pages

In a world of flux, as old territorial borders dissolve and new nationscome together, who controls ideas, information, and creativity? Whopatrols the new frontiers? This volume opens a window to the dark sideof globalization and the struggles for autonomy it has generated --from forest disputes to indigenous land claims to conflicts betweenfarmers and the patent owners of genetically modified seeds. The workof Palestinian poets, whose attachment to the land is explored in apowerful Coda, shows that a politics of place brings to the foreintense feelings of attachment, something common to all struggles overterritory and autonomy.
