Description


Urban Dependency reveals how the world's urban population fulfills its energy demands by exploiting rural energy supplies and workers. Fulkerson and Thomas explain how urban dependency is legitimized through urbanormative ideology and fueled by political-economic forces, and call for a more sustainable approach centered on promoting rural justice.
