Christian Parenti Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change & the New Geography of Violenc
KPFA Radio presents
CHRISTIAN PARENTI
Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence
Hosted by Richard Wolinsky

"A brilliant weather report from the near future of world politics." -Mike Davis

From Africa to Asia and Latin America, the new era of climate war has begun. As temperatures rise, glaciers melt, droughts intensify and extreme weather becomes more frequent, climate change is expressing itself as greater violence, humanitarian crisis, social breakdown and spreading state failure. In Tropic of Chaos, award-winning writer Christian Parenti travels the frontlines of this gathering catastrophe to reveal its economic, political and military history in a skillful combination of literary journalism and cold-eyed scholarly analysis.

An investigative journalist's tough analysis of how the world's most vulnerable statesare confronting the new crisis of climate change. A dark look at a looming world crisis. Kirkus Reviews    

Parenti is a contributing editor at The Nation and a visiting scholar at the City University of New York. He has a PhD in sociology from the London School of Economics. The author of Lockdown America, The Soft Cage and The
Freedom, he has written for Fortune, the New York Times, Mother Jones and the London Review of Books.

"A richly investigated and original account of the role climate change is already playing in contemporary conflicts. This glimpse of the future we most fear arrives just in time to change course." Naomi Klein
