About this book

While there is a large and rapidly expanding literature dealing with how people affect the environment, less attention has been given in recent years to how the environment shapes human development, for example in the increased dispersal of diseases and pests or the vulnerability to natural disaster sometimes entailed by technological innovation. The book addresses the key issues and provides a valuable introduction to the major debates.

Contents

Past environmental change (pre-history to Roman); past environmental change (Roman to modern); modern situation; threats - due to humans; acts of nature; environmental management and environmental change; responses; the future.
