Description - Planetary Mine: Territories of Extraction under Late Capitalism by Martin Arboleda
Planetary Mine suggests that the burgeoning race for resources that began at the turn of the century has come to signal two distinct, yet overlapping, epoch-making shifts: the end of the Western phase of capitalism, on the one hand, and an unfolding technological revolution on the other. Through an exploration of the integrated logistical infrastructures that connect mines in the Atacama Desert of Chile with an expanding constellation of megacities, ports, banks, and factories across East Asia, the book rethinks uneven geographical development in the current, post-globalisation context.
