I’ve written the foreword to a new collection, Enforcing Ecocide: Power, Policing & Planetary Militarization, edited by Alexander Dunlap and Andrea Brock.
Here’s a bit from the foreword:
Enforcing Ecocide collects evidence from around the world to illustrate the fundamental connections between state violence, capitalist accumulation, and environmental destruction. It thus helps bring into focus the precise nature of the problem we are facing. It is now far too late to prevent catastrophic climate change; any realistic strategy must turn its energies to mitigation and adaptation. The state will attempt to adapt via increased militarism and authoritarianism, because the first imperative of state power is to preserve state power. In our present circumstances, that demand may be at odds with the survival of humanity.
