Contents Notes
"An interdisciplinary book written by M├ętis scientist and activist Max Liboiron, Pollution is Colonialism shows how doing environmental research and activism is often premised on a colonial worldview even when practitioners are working towards benevolent goals. The book lays out key terms and a framework for understanding scientific research methods as ways of being in the world that can align with or against colonialism. Liboiron models an anti-colonial scientific practice aligned with Indigenous concepts of land, ethics, and relations, all while taking up the project of Western science, dealing with issues of compromise and conflicting ideas of good relations"--Provided by publisher.
