englischThe volume “Latin America’s Colonial Memory” illuminates historic and current inequalities in Latin America related to the wealth in natural resources and the structural dependence on their export from manifold perspectives. Current economic, social and cultural conflicts are discussed against the backdrop of a long history of exploitation under unequal conditions. Besides experts on resource extractivism (Mirta Antonelli, Maristella Svampa), the volume includes reflections on social movements and alternative cosmo-visions forming in the context of such conflicts (Raúl Zibechi), also from activist perspectives (Chacho Liempe, Gabriela Romano, Gipi Fernández). Moreover, the volume counts on artistic approaches (Eduardo Molinari) and theoretical reflections (Fernando Coronil, Luis Tapia) on the situation of the left and the lack of new visions of the future on the political level or the paradox between state institutions and alternative concepts like the Buen Vivir. A third section of texts embeds the topic of wealth of natural resources and dependence on resource export into a broader frame of historically grown and entangled inequalities in terms economic aspects, but also with respect to asymmetrical circulations of knowledge and discuss possible solutions in order to overcome them (Elmar Altvater, Ana Esther Ceceña).

»In zweierlei Hinsicht ist die Veröffentlichung begrüßenswert. Einerseits gibt es zu diesem Komplex kaum deutschsprachige Publikationen. Andererseits haben die Autorinnen trotz der wissenschaftlichen Ausrichtung einen klar erkennbaren emanzipatorischen Anspruch, was bei solchen Publikationen längst nicht mehr üblich ist.«
