Anand Pandian (Author), Jake Kosek (Author) & 0 more. ISBN-13: 978-0822330912. A range of innovative contributions address the most pressing questions regarding the mutually mediating ‘traffic’ between the terms of nature, culture, and race. This book now sets the standard in thinking critically-that is, politically-about the racial cultures of nature, difference, and distinction. -David Theo Goldberg, author of The Racial State.

How do race and nature work as terrains of power? From eighteenth-century claims that climate determined character to twentieth-century medical debates about the racial dimensions of genetic disease, concepts of race and nature are integrally connected, woven into notions of body, landscape, and nation. Yet rarely are these complex entanglements explored in relation to the contemporary cultural politics of difference. This volume takes up that challenge. Jake Kosek is a geographer and a Lang Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University. Anand Pandian is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley.

How do race and nature work as terrains of power? From eighteenth-century claims that climate determined character to twentieth-century medical debates about the racial dimensions of genetic disease, concepts of race and nature are integrally connected, woven into notions of body, landscape, and nation. Yet rarely are these complex entanglements explored in relation to the contemporary cultural politics of difference. This volume takes up that challenge. Distinguished contributors chart the traffic between race and nature across sites including rainforests, colonies, and courtrooms.

Synthesizing a number of fields—anthropology, cultural studies, and critical race, feminist, and postcolonial theory—this collection analyzes diverse historical, cultural, and spatial locations. Contributors draw on thinkers such as Fanon, Foucault, and Gramsci to investigate themes ranging from exclusionary notions of whiteness and wilderness in North America to linguistic purity in Germany. Some essayists focus on the racialized violence of imperial rule and evolutionary science and the biopolitics of race and class in the Guatemalan civil war. Others examine how race and nature are fused in biogenetic discourse—in the emergence of “racial diseases” such as sickle cell anemia, in a case of mistaken in vitro fertilization in which a white couple gave birth to a black child, and even in the world of North American dog breeding. Several essays tackle the politics of representation surrounding environmental justice movements, transnational sex tourism, and indigenous struggles for land and resource rights in Indonesia and Brazil.Contributors.

Couldn't get through the first chapter as it appears the author needed to plump up the volume but was not able to do so without repeating himself ad infinitum.

Any serious scholar who reads this book's introduction will get the feeling it was cobbled together from yet one more conference that didn't quite work out. Too wide-ranging to hold together theoretically, the piecemeal and somewhat simplistic analysis of the introductory chapter is disappointing. This is an important topic and one would have expected veteran Donald Moore to do better, even though it's an edited volume. A few of the individual chapters are interesting, although those authors have done better work elsewhere, such as Tania Li, Paul Gilroy, or Donna Haraway. The chapter which holds promise as covering some new ground is the one by Alcida Ramos, an innovative and synthetic thinker, although it too would benefit from more polish and finesse. The whole volume has a hasty feeling to it and is ultimately a disappointment.
