Summary "The 20th century saw an unprecedented scramble for resources, reaching the most remote corners of the world. Simultaneously, a quiet revolution has taken place with environmental protection, land and community rights regimes gradually taking hold, albeit unevenly, across the global South. Institutional topographies and policies have never before appeared as green and socially inclusive, yet they coexist with a deepening socio-environmental crisis. Intensified pressures stand in contrast to, persist and even thrive under new environmental and social protection measures. The author offers an anthropological analysis of the paradox. Building on the concept of post-frontier governance, he portrays the host of new regulatory technologies, practices and institutions that nominally close, yet more accurately characterize and restructure, contemporary resource frontiers. This book examines these arrangements ethnographically in the Peruvian Amazon focusing on the YƔnesha people and their involvement with the organization and protected area planning, logging and oil development." -- Back cover
