The widespread perception of a global environmental crisis has stimulated the burgeoning interest in environmental studies. This has encouraged a wide range of scholars, including historians, to place the environment at the heart of their analytical and conceptual explorations. As a result, the understanding of the history of human interactions with all parts of the cultivated and non-cultivated surface of the earth and with living organisms and other physical phenomena is increasingly seen as an essential aspect both of historical scholarship and in adjacent fields, such as the history of science, anthropology, geography and sociology. Environmental history can be of considerable assistance in efforts to comprehend the traumatic environmental difficulties facing us today, while making us reconsider the bounds of possibility open to humans over time and space in their interaction with different environments.

This new series explores these interactions in studies that together touch on all parts of the globe and all manner of environments including the built environment. Books in Palgrave Studies in World Environmental History will come from a wide range of fields of scholarship, from the sciences, social sciences and humanities. Palgrave Studies in World Environmental History particularly encourages interdisciplinary projects that emphasize historical engagement with science and other fields of study.
