Summary "Essays in this volume focus on notions of the ethics of life that emerge out of environmental, biopolitical, bioethical, and historical debates currently taking place on the Iberian Peninsula"--Provided by publisher
"The contributors ask the following questions: - What are the different rhetorical strategies employed by writers, artists, filmmakers, and activists to react to the degradation of life and climate change? - How are urban movements using environmental issues to resist corporate privatization of the commons? - What is the shape of Spanish debates on reproductive rights and biotechnology? - What is the symbolic significance of the bullfighting debate and other human/animal issues in today's political turmoil in Spain?"-- Provided by publisher
