About this book

Simmons examines the ways in which cultural processes expressed themselves in ecological change, and a series of examples shows the varieties of changes which can be produced. A separate chapter adumbrates the kind of environmental history that may eventually be written for, in this case, England/Wales and Japan. The dominant epistemology of the book is empirical and realist, but in the last chapter Simmons considers other modes of `environmental knowing'.
