Promotional Information

Gullion guides her readership deep into one of the most heated controversies in our fossil-fuel-addicted culture. Meticulously researched and written with an eye for nuance, this book is a welcome addition to the growing body of literature about fracking. Read it. Regardless of where you stand on the issue, you're likely to learn something. -- Seamus McGraw, author of Betting the Farm on a Drought: Stories from the Front Lines of Climate Change and The End of Country: Dispatches from the Frack Zone Jessica Gullion has written a unique ethnography dedicated to one of today's pressing and controversial issues: fracking. This volume should be required reading in any environmental sociology course and would serve well as a case study for research methods as well. Fracking the Neighborhood is likely to garner significant national attention while debates continue among residents, companies, and policy makers over the extraction of natural resources through contentious means. -- Brenda Phillips, Ohio University-Chillicothe, author of Disaster Recovery and Qualitative Disaster Research
