One Planet: The fight to save the Brazilian Amazon

Jun 17, 2018

  

On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll have a conversation with Chris Feliciano Arnold about his new book, The Third Bank of the River: Power and Survival in the Twenty-First Century Amazon.

Arnold paints a complex portrait of the Brazilian Amazon, whose history is dotted with violent colonial conquests, explorers, rubber tappers, missionaries, drug dealers, military dictatorship and corrupt states. How are indigenous people fighting back?

Guest:

Chris Feliciano Arnold, journalist and author of The Third Bank of the River: Power and Survival in the Twenty-First Century Amazon
