by Peter Donigi

Condition: Very Good Condition/Very Good

International Books, 1994. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. This author argues that mining and petroleum are unconstitutional and invalid. Only 3% of the land is owned by the government, but it has granted companies such as BHP, MIM Holdings, Chevron and Mobil many licenses to explore and exlpoit land belonging to traditional owners. In the light of the Uruguay Round of Trade Negotiations and the UN conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, the time is ripe to create instruments for surveying and registering the land of indigenous peoples in their name. shouldn't this be a pre-requisite for the World Bank and other agencies to granting aid, as are human rights and the right to multi-party and free elections?
