Making Threats: Biofears and Environmental Anxieties Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Making Threats is designed to make students, scholars, activists and policymakers think critically about how environmental and biological fears are implicated in the construction of threats to local, national and global security. Writing from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, the authors contribute to scholarship on environment and security that engages with some of the more potent and disturbing political and cultural aspects of the contemporary scene.

Book News Annotation:

This collection is a multidisciplinary consideration of how fears of environmental and biological threats are produced and deployed in the media and the culture. Hartmann (director, Population and Development Program, Hampshire College), Subramaniam (women's studies, U. of Massachusetts), and Zerner (environmental studies, Sarah Lawrence College) present nine papers discussing the political economy of security fears, Malthusianism and the terror of scarcity, the debates of genetically modified foods, the rhetoric of biological invasions, the political construction of civilian risk of bioterror, and the demography of perceived threats, among other topics. The essays are accompanied by "reflections" drawing out some further implications.
