Product Details

Praise

“[Gold, Oil, and Avocados] shows to what extent the struggles for land and raw materials—in which governments, local mafias and multinational corporations are active—explain the recent coups, civil revolts and the environmental crisis in Latin America. […] Who will pocket the lion’s share of the business in these consumer goods? Galeano asked this question fifty years ago. Robinson’s new book answers: Corporations based in New York, Zurich or Shenzhen. The veins remain open.” Frankfurter Algemeiner Zeitung

“A chilling book in which Robinson details the new treasures of Latin America and how they help explain the latest coups d’etat, citizens rebellions and environmental crises” —Irene Hernández Velasco, BBC Mundo

“Robinson’s travels reveal the ‘new open veins’ described by Eduardo Gaelano now in the language of narrative journalism.” —Newsweek Mexico
