Abstract

In these times the processes of poverty and social inequality have increased, as well as the scenarios of violence and death that involve people, the planet and life itself. The destructive features of the late international capitalist order have placed the life-death relationship at the center of social, humanistic, ecological and artistic discussion. This book invites us to rethink the contemporary world through the discussion on biopolitics, necropolitics, juvenicide and narcoculture, and offers an analysis of the conformation of the features that emphasize the inequalities, distinctive of some sectors of the middle and upper classes.

Abstract

In contemporary societies we see a state of social inequality as in the old regime: the accumulation of wealth in 1% of the population, multimillionaires as presidents, the increase in luxury consumption, the emergence of a culture of distinction, as well as the concentration of the earth and the spatial segregation. To understand these phenomena in a coherent interpretative framework, this essay proposes the hypothesis that in the early 21st century we are experiencing a new combination of refeudalization at the global level, but with specific regional features. In Latin America, this concept is particularly useful for understanding the return of the right to power after a period of leftist governments.

Abstract

Has the quality of life of indigenous peoples in Latin America improved after three decades in which legislation has been built that recognizes them? Statistical information and the increase in social conflict in indigenous territories leads to a negative answer to this question. This essay is a critical reflection on the exhaustion of the multicultural moment in Latin America from the dialogue with the critical thinking that has emerged from the movements themselves, especially from activists and intellectuals who denounce the relationship between recognition policies and extractivist capitalism, resisting the colonialist images that these policies reproduce because they deny the historicity and political potential of their peoples.

Abstract

This book analyzes the progress of neoextractivism in Latin America through four fundamental nuclei: the first proposes the categories of neoextractivism and Consensus of Commodities as privileged windows to read the current crisis; the second analyzes the phases of neoextractivism from 2003 to the present; the third addresses the social resistance and the new political grammars from the concept of the ecoterritorial turn, and highlights the advance of indigenous peoples and the growing role of women; and the fourth illustrates the expansion of the frontiers of extractivism: criminal territorialities, patriarchal violence and extreme energies.
