Pollution is colonialism (Duke University Press, 2021)

By Max Liboiron

Pollution Is Colonialism provides desperately needed analytic clarity on this settler colonial present. Although the book focuses on plastic pollution, it is relevant to all areas of science, because it illustrates the ways that colonialism can show up in the sciences.  This book invites readers first and foremost to look at knowledge practices and forms of knowledge creation, to think about their land relations, and to recognize colonial land relations in their familiar, seemingly benign practices and techniques.
