About this product
- DescriptionThe fight over the tar sands in North America is among the most epic environmental and social justice battles of our time, and it is one of the first that has managed to quite explicitly marry concern for frontline communities and immediate local hazards with fear for the future of the entire planet. Including leading voices involved in the struggle against the tar sands, A Line In The Tar Sands offers a critical analysis of the impact of the tar sands and the challenges opponents face in their efforts to organise effective resistance.
