This book discusses the conditions that underpin configuration of specific places as resource peripheries and the consequences that such a socio-spatial formation involves for those places. The book thereby provides an interdisciplinary approach underpinned by economic geography, political ecology, resource geography, development studies and political geography. It also discusses the different technological, political and economic changes that make the ongoing production of resource peripheries a distinctive socio-spatial formation under the global economy. Through a global and interdisciplinary perspective that uncovers ongoing political processes, socio-economic changes and socio-ecological dynamics at resource peripheries, this book argues that it is critical to take a more profound appraisal about the socio-spatial processes behind the contemporary way in which capitalism is appropriating and transforming nature.

Felipe Irarrazaval is a postdoctoral researcher and adjunct professor at the Instituto de Estudios Urbanos y Territoriales at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile and at the Center for the Study of Conflicts and Social Cohesion (COES). He received a Ph.D. in Human Geography from The University of Manchester. His research examines resource governance, particularly extractive industries in Latin America, through the lens of global production networks, political geography, and urban studies. He has undertaken research in Peru, Bolivia and Chile, and has published his research in journals like Economic Geography, Political Geography, Annals of AAG, Capitalism Nature and Socialism, and EURE. Martin Arias-Loyola has a PhD in Economic Geography and Planning Studies at the Bartlett School of Planning, University College London. He is Assistant Professor at the Departamento de Economia, Universidad Catolica del Norte; Associate Researcher at IDEAR (Regional Institute for Applied Economics) and at ORDHUM (Regional Observatory for Human Development); and Postdoctoral Researcher/Visiting Academic at the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, University of Melbourne. His research interests are variegated and include the study of power asymmetries; the dark side of economic and political geography; (neo)extractivism; extractive industries; neoliberalism; grassroot movements and political resistance; the political role of academia; and cooperative modes of production in informal settlements, to promote self-sufficiency, camaraderie, and economic/political autonomy.
