Who Killed Berta Caceres? : Dams, Death Squads, and an Indigenous Defender's Battle for the Planet


Deeply affecting--and angering--portrait of the life and death of a courageous environmental activist The very first time Honduran environmental activist Berta Caceres met the writer Nina Lakhani, Caceres said, "The army has an assassination list with my name at the top. I want to live, but in this country there is total impunity. When they want to kill me, they will do it." In 2015, Caceres won the Goldman prize, the world's leading environmental award, for her leadership of indigenous organizations against illegal logging and the construction of four giant dams.

The next year she was murdered. Lakhani tracked Caceres's remarkable career in the face of years of threats--two fellow environmental campaigners were killed before her--and the journalist also endured threats and harassment herself. She was the only foreign journalist to attend the 2018 trial of Caceres's killers, where security officials of the dam builders were found guilty of planning her death.

Many questions about who ordered the killing remain. Drawing on years of familiarity with Caceres, her family, and her movement, as well as interviews with company and government officials, Lakhani paints an intimate portrait of a remarkable woman as well as a state beholden to both corporate control and US power.
