9780816518739: Chicano Culture, Ecology, Politics: Subversive Kin (Society, Environment, and Place)

Until recently, mainstream American environmentalism has been a predominantly white, middle-class movement, essentially ignoring the class, race, and gender dimensions of environmental politics. In this provocative collection of original essays, the environmental dimensions of the Chicana/o experience are explicitly expressed and debated. Employing a variety of genres ranging from poetry to autobiography to theoretical and empirical essays, the voices in this collection speak to the most significant issues of environmentalism and social justice, recognizing throughout the need for a pluralism of Chicana/o philosophies. The contributors provide an excellent basis for understanding how multiple Chicana/o views on the environment play out in the context of dominant social, political and economic views. Chicano Culture, Ecology, Politics examines a number of Chicana/o ecological perspectives. How can the ethics of reciprocity present in Chicana/o agropastoral life be protected and applied on a broader scale? How can the dominant society, whose economic structure is invested in "placeless mobility," take note of the harm caused to land-based cultures, take responsibility for it, and take heed before it is too late? Will the larger society be "ecologically housebroken" before it destroys its home? Grounded in actual political struggles waged by Chicana/o communities over issues of environmental destruction, cultural genocide, and socioeconomic domination, this volume provides an important series of snapshots of Chicana/o history. Chicano Culture, Ecology, Politics illuminates the bridges that exist—and must be understood—between race, ethnicity, class, gender, politics, and ecology. CONTENTS

About the Author:

Devon Peña is a sociologist at Colorado College in Colorado Springs and past director of La Sierra Foundation of San Luis. He has written several books on Chicano issues, including The Terror of the Machine: Technology, Work, Gender, and Ecology on the U.S.-Mexico Border.

Review:

"The book masterfully extends current thinking about the cultural and political ecology of the Indo-Hispano communities of the Upper Rio Grande. It thoroughly succeeds on several levels: as a scholarly work, weaving together diverse strands of ideas from ecology, cultural studies, and critical political economy into a more coherent bioregionalist analysis; and in political terms, demonstrating the importance of these interconnections for real socioenvironmental struggles taking place in the Southwest. In short, the book is a most enjoyable read and is highly recommended." —Annals of the Association of American Geographers
