IN SEEKING TO UNDERSTAND the relationships of the local to the global in contemporary environmental justice struggles, we have yearned for a way to trace the “occluded relationships” between transnational economic actors and the things that tie them to particular places, such as labour, land, resources, and commodity dynamics. The bodies caught in the middle have been ‘raced’ and erased, made invisible, and wiped away. With gripping urgency, Rob Nixon’s book Slow Violence and the Environmentalism of the Poor brings those bodies back into view by exposing the violence perpetrated against them across time and space.
