About the Author:

Helen Collinson is editor of Women and Revolution in Nicaragua and the author of Death on Delivery: The Impact of the Arms Trade on the Third World.

Review:

Green Guerrillas is the story of environmental conflicts and initiatives taking place in Latin America and the Caribbean. Green Guerrillas profiles the people on the frontline of a very real, very active environmental war, from indigenous groups and forest settlers to fishing communities, peasant farmers, flower workers, shanty-town activists, municipal governments, and many more. Whether urban or rural, local or national, these struggles show that defence of the environment is integral to the quest for basic human rights. Communities' imaginative and sustainable alternatives to the dominant development model are a key focus of Green Guerrillas contributions. Green Guerrillas brings together leading environmental writers from both sides of the Atlantic, including Latin America. Vivid reports from the grassroots are combined with concise, hardhitting analysis of the continents's environmental movement in the 1990s. Green Guerrillas is an essential addition to any environmental studies and international issues reference shelf. -- Midwest Book Review
