This book provides an extended analysis of how resource extraction projects stimulate social, cultural and economic change in indigenous communities. Through a range of case studies, including open cast mining, artisanal mining, logging, deforestation, oil extraction and industrial fishing, the contributors explore the challenges highlighted in global debates on sustainability, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and climate change. The case studies are used to assess whether and how development processes might compete and conflict with the market objectives of multinational corporations and the organizational and moral principles of indigenous communities. Emphasizing the perspectives of directly-affected parties, the authors identify common patterns in the way in which extraction projects are conceptualized, implemented and perceived. The book provides a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the human environments where resource extraction takes place and its consequent impacts on local livelihoods. Its in-depth case studies underscore the need for increased social accountability in the planning and development of natural resource extraction projects.

'Read this book if you want to understand the sundry consequences commercial resource extraction typically bring to indigenous livelihoods. Across a variety of regions and resources in both developed and developing countries, the authors find resilient indigenous cultures that are narrowly viewed as barriers to development by governments and corporations. The focus on host communities is this book's unique contribution.'Scott Pegg, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), USA'This is an essential book on a long-neglected topic. Both scholars and policymakers should read it closely.'Michael Ross, University of California, Los Angeles, USA
