Reviews

"… the book profits from its narrative and analysis based on the author's knowledge of theory and his authentic experience. It is an insightful contribution to the discourse on the continuing multi-layered evolution of post-communist states and societies in Early Europe, in which ecology has played an important point."—Slovakia

"…intelligent and interesting account of the fate of the ecology movement in Slovakia in the last two decades. It deserves to be widely read."—Canadian Slavonic Papers

"Nature Protests is an engaging contribution to postcommunist environmental studies. Lively and well-written, it is appropriate for upper-level undergraduates as well as graduate studies."—Slavic Review

"Snajdr's work draws on multidisciplinary theoretical traditions and empirical works in anthropology and political ecology, a synthesis that emerges as an original contribution to an anthropology that has thus far paid scant attention to ecology, let along ecological movements. Essential."—Choice

"Nature Protests is a vivid examination of the transition to post—socialist politics in the late twentieth century. The case is Slovakia, and the question is: why does environmental politics expand and shrink so rapidly as communist government comes to an end in Eastern Europe? Edward Snajdr's answer contributes an excellent addition to anthropological studies of the politics of nature as the iron curtain falls away."—K. Sivaramakrishnan, Professor of Anthropology, Yale University

"This book tells two important stories—-about ecological activism and about the tumultuous transformation to democracy and market in Eastern Europe—- from the point of view of a small country that is not much studied but that is, in fact, a keystone for the region."—Andrzej W. Tymowski, Director of International Programs, American Council of Learned Societies
