The Most Dammed Country in the World

29,00 

The Most Dammed Country in the World is a collection of essays and speech excerpts by Dai Qing, a Chinese journalist and activist that protested against the construction of The Three Gorges Dam.

Dai Qing spent many years criticizing the controversial project. Her comments bring attention to the environmental, social, and cultural consequences of the constructed dam and explore the Chinese political climate and circumstances under which such a ridiculous project went through. She paints a grim picture of the country, whose the so admired progress was built on low standards regarding human rights and short-sighted, greedy exploitation of the environment and assets – both human and natural.

The author, with the awe-inspiring determination, lists numerous consequences of the dam’s construction, including interference with water economy, water pollution, geologic disasters, ill effect on the weather, and mass human relocation. 

At the same time, she debunks the alleged benefits, clearly indicating that if the profit and loss account was taken into consideration, the project would never be concluded.
