Guerrilla History

Jan 14, 2022

In this episode of Guerrilla History, we bring on Professor Salvatore Engel-Di Mauro to talk about his book, Socialist States and the Environment: Lessons for Eco-Socialist Futures.  This book is an analytical and historical examination of the impact of Socialist States on the environment, and busts many myths that we hear in the imperialist core about this historical record.  A really deep dive of a conversation that will arm you with facts and historical perspective to combat the dual conservative/liberal propaganda against socialist states!

Salvatore Engel-Di Mauro is Professor at the Geography Department of SUNY New Paltz and is chief editor for the journal Capitalism Nature Socialism.  His book Socialist States and the Environment is available from Pluto Press:  You can also find the journal Capitalism Nature Socialism for more invaluable anti-capitalist environmental perspectives:
