Los-river-Carreras-NegroAl comienzo de El río corre Negro, Elizabeth C. Economy paints the horrifying image of the Huai River, a body of water running murky and thick with “garbage, yellow foam, and dead fish.” The Huai has essentially become a trashcan for the factories operating nearby, a place to easily dispose of chemicals, dye, and miscellaneous waste. Despite its status as the fourth most polluted river system in China, upwards of 150 million Chinese citizens are dependent on Huai River as their water supply. In this river, Economy argues, lies the central paradox of the Chinese environmental approach as a whole – while economic and industrial prosperity can bring reform and environmental protection, the industry itself is contributing to China’s already problematic levels of pollution and contamination.

Economy breaks down her book into eight sections, layering the history and context of the Chinese individual’s relationship with nature atop the government’s mentality of “first development, then environment,” before delving in to the problems and possible outcomes of the environmental state. In particular, chapter two, which discussed the major religions of China and their bond with nature, was one of the book’s highpoints, as it provided a rich insight into the importance of protecting these natural bodies of water and land.

Elizabeth C. Economía El río corre Negro is a must-read for those looking for a comprehensive history and analysis of China’s environmental situation. Additionally, those interested in globalized economy and the environmental future of the world should also invest in this book, as Economy discusses the influence of China’s situation on the world. As a whole, El río corre Negro está bien escrito y bien estructurado con la información que fundamenta la relevancia e importancia de la reforma del medio ambiente en China.
