Timothy Mitchell, Carbon Democracy – paperback due in July

I missed the hardback of this a while back, but the paperback is due in July.

9781781681169_Carbon_Democracy_PBCarbon Democracy provides a unique examination of the relationship between oil and democracy. Interweaving the history of energy, political analysis, and economic theory, Mitchell targets conventional wisdom regarding energy and governance. Emphasizing how oil and democracy have intermixed, he argues that while coal provided the impetus for mass democracy, the shift to oil drastically limited democratic possibility; above all, the ability to confront contemporary ecological crises.
