Politics and the Environment in Eastern Europe is a wonderful volume that makes an excellent set of unique contributions to the political ecology and political anthropology of Eastern European environmentalism, environmental policy and the post-socialist transition. In fact, there is no other project like it as far as I am aware of, and the collection of engaging and critical chapters will surely be a sought-after resource for the present and future scholarship of the region. The project is timely and significant and will help to push theory and ethnography forward into new and fresh areas of inquiry.

Given its theoretical and empirical depth, this book makes an essential read to all (early/advanced career) scholars interested in critically engaged and non-essentialist understandings of social movements and protests, whether or not related to the environment, whether or not situated in the EE region. The Open Access eBook enhances its reach to scholars’ of the Majority World in a true gesture of environmental and social justice.
