Water Struggles as Resistance to Neoliberal Capitalism

A Time of Reproductive Unrest

«

'The planet’s water is in peril, seen as a resource for the global economy at the service of transnational capital. In her powerful new book, Madelaine Moore shows us that water does not exist outside the politics and culture that shapes our core values. To protect water and the human right to water requires a profound commitment to social change and true democracy from the ground up.'
Maude Barlow, water activist and co-founder Blue Planet Project

‘Madelaine Moore’s concept of “reproductive unrest” provides a sophisticated lens on emerging resistances to the world-wide commercialisation of water services. Her comparison of distinctive instances of water grabbing in Australia and Ireland foregrounds a global patterning of public services captured by transnational capital. Corresponding civic mobilisations animate her sensitive exposition of maturing socio-ecological movements in defence of social reproduction needs. Moore’s analysis offers an exemplary inquiry into the changing complexion, meaning and impact of contemporary anti-capitalist resistances.’
Philip McMichael, Professor Emeritus of Global Development, Cornell University

'A remarkable aspect of the book lies in its engagement with long-term historical developments to characterise the various types of neoliberal regimes co-existing today and why these issues matters to understand water struggles.'
Basile Boulay, EADI Debating Development Research Blog
