A full English translation of
"Geopolitics of the Amazon: Landlord Hereditary Power and Capitalist Accumulation,"
by Álvaro García Linera, vice-president of Bolivia and one of Latin America’s leading Marxist intellectuals.
This important book-length essay responds to criticisms from left critics who have attacked the Morales government for what they call “extractivism,” and examines the real issues in the debate over plans to complete a highway in the TIPNIS region.
This is the essay that I translated and published in five parts on Life on the Left in December 2012. Many thanks to Ian Angus for making it available in an easily accessible PDF format through his excellent web site Climate & Capitalism.
