Mountaintop Mining in Appalachia
Understanding Stakeholders and Change in Environmental Conflict<http://www.combinedacademic.co.uk/mountaintop-mining-in-appalachia>
Susan F. Hirsch & E. Franklin Dukes
   "This book bridges the worlds of scholarship and on-the-ground conflict resolution, offering ground-breaking theoretical insights as well as concrete applications. The authors creatively link deep analyses of stakeholders to the real world of environmental conflict, applying their ideas to the challenge of mountaintop mining in an innovative way."-Rosemary O'Leary, co-editor of Environmental Governance Reconsidered: Challenges, Choices, and Opportunities.
   "Even-handed in its treatment, Mountaintop Mining in Appalachia presents a significant contribution to the literature. I know of no other book that casts the MTM issue in this light."-Geoffrey L. Buckley, co-editor of Mountains of Injustice: Social and Environmental Justice in Appalachia.
   Residents of the Appalachian coalfields share a history and heritage, deep connections to the land, and pride in their own resilience. These same residents are also profoundly divided over the practice of mountaintop mining-that is, the removal and disposal in nearby valleys of soil and rock in order to reach underlying coal seams. Companies and some miners claim that the practice has reduced energy prices, earned income for shareholders, and provided needed jobs. Opponents of mountaintop mining argue that it poisons Appalachia's waters and devastates entire communities for the sake of short-term gains. This conflict is emblematic of many other environmental disputes in the United States and around the world, disputes whose intensity derives not only from economic and environmental stakes but also from competing claims to individual and community identity. Looking beyond the slogans and seemingly irreconcilable differences, however, can reveal deeper causes of conflict, such as flawed institutions, politics, and inequality or the strongly held values of parties for whom compromise is difficult to achieve.
   Mountaintop Mining in Appalachia focuses on the people of the region, the people who have the most at stake and have been the most active in trying to shift views and practices. By examining the experiences of these stakeholders and their efforts to effect change, Susan F. Hirsch and E. Franklin Dukes introduce key concepts and theories from the field of conflict analysis and resolution. They provide a compelling case study of how stakeholders challenge governance-as-usual, while offering insight into the causes of conflict over other environmental issues.
