This book is a study of oil production that focuses on the places from which oil is extracted, and on the problems, both environmental and human, created in those places. It consists of eight case-studies, all of them attempting to answer these questions: What can indigenous people do when faced with the destruction of their natural and social habitats? And how do oil companies respond to the various forms of local and indigenous resistance to their activities? The case studies deal with oil-producing regions in Alaska, Ecuador, Venezuela, Peru, Colombia, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea and West Siberia and encompass 18 indigenous population groups.

Tobias Haller is a researcher at the Institute of Anthropology at the University of Zurich (Switzerland). Annja Bloechlinger, Markus John, Esther Marthaler and Sabine Ziegler are members of INFOE (Switzerland).
