As the role of humans in environmental degradation becomes increasingly clear, the field of environmental anthropology has expanded considerably. This collection offers a wide ranging consideration of the field which illustrates how environmental anthropology can increase our understanding and help find solutions to environmental problems. It combines grounded case study material with chapters exploring theoretical and methodological issues and draws on disciplines such as sociology and environmental science as well as anthropology to illuminate those issues.
The case studies are drawn from North America, Europe, India, Africa, Asia and South America, offering the reader a stimulating survey of work currently being conducted in the field.
An excellent collection that exemplifies the value of ecologically sensitive and informed anthropological research for shedding light on environmental problems and issues. The contributions demonstrate that environmental anthropology has become an essential component of environmental social science. - Riley E. Dunlap, Oklahoma State University, USA
