Havoc of Capitalism brings together an interdisciplinary community of scholars from around the world to contribute to the dialogue about alternative global futures in the current context of environmental crisis, uncertainty and inequality. The contributors to this book provide insight into the havoc wrought by processes of capitalism, colonialism and consumption. Drawing on present environmental matters of concern, such as the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, First Nation perspectives on ecological colonization, and the possibilities for transformation and action, this book makes a timely intervention in debates about accumulated historical debts, ordinary ecological crises and the challenges for sustaining social and environmental alternatives.
