About this title:

Synopsis: Throughout the Americas, a boom in oil, gas, and mining development has pushed the extractive frontier deeper into Indigenous territories. Centering on a long-term study of Enron and Shell’s Cuiabá pipeline, From Enron to Evo traces the struggles of Bolivia’s Indigenous peoples for self-determination over their lives and territories. In his analysis of their response to this encroaching development, author Derrick Hindery also sheds light on surprising similarities between neoliberal reform and the policies of the nation’s first Indigenous president, Evo Morales.

Drawing upon extensive interviews and document analysis, Hindery argues that many of the structural conditions created by neoliberal policies—including partial privatization of the oil and gas sector—still persist under Morales. Tactics employed by both Morales and his neoliberal predecessors utilize the rhetoric of environmental protection and Indigenous rights to justify oil, gas, mining, and road development in Indigenous territories and sensitive ecoregions.

Indigenous peoples, while mindful of gains made during Morales’s tenure, are increasingly dissatisfied with the administration’s development model, particularly when it infringes upon their right to self-determination. From Enron to Evo demonstrates their dynamic and pragmatic strategies to cope with development and adversity, while also advancing their own aims.

Offering a critique of both free-market piracy and the dilemmas of resource nationalism, this is a groundbreaking book for scholars, policy-makers, and advocates concerned with Indigenous politics, social movements, environmental justice, and resistance in an era of expanding resource development.

"This volume will be useful for any reader wishing to see firsthand the effects of neoliberal policies and multilevel actors on environmental conditions and on indigenous livelihood."—CHOICE Reviews "From Enron to Evo is a very accessible and important book, one that captures so much of what defines contemporary Latin America. It deserves a wide readership."—Hispanic American Historical Review "Derrick Hindery has followed the Cuiaba pipeline for many years and many miles. Along the way he has excavated its complicated history and explored how the pipeline embodies the contradictions and chicaneries of Bolivian neoliberalism, as well as the tensions of Bolivian post-neoliberalism. This book brings together those years of work in a compelling 'must read' for scholars of Latin America, energy, and neoliberal governance."—Anthony Bebbington, editor of Social Conflict, Economic Development and Extractive Industry: Evidence from South America "There are no other recent works on the rapid emergence of new forms of natural resource politics in Latin America, even though this is increasingly becoming a major of area of interest in fields like anthropology, political science, geography, economics, and environmental studies."—Bret Gustafson, author of New Languages of the State: Indigenous Resurgence and the Politics of Knowledge in Bolivia "From Enron to Evo is rich in detail. Much of the history and geography of this region has not gotten much attention in the English language."—Kathleen Schroeder, contributor to Latin America in the 21st Century: Challenges and Solutions (Key Words: Enron. Evo, Pipeline Politics, Global Environmentalism, Indigenous Rights. Bolivia, Derrick Hindery, Susanna B. Hecht, Anthropology, Indigenous Studies, Latin American Studies, Oil, Gas, Mining).
