About this book

&i;A pioneering attempt to link together the study of human ecological relations and cultural or discursive symbolism...His approach is one that offers a new lease of life to ecological anthropology&o;.
Using both the comparative literature on coastal societies, and the history of fishing in his native Iceland, Palsson shows how cultural representations of human-environmental interactions are rooted in systems of production and social life.
