About this book

This book considers the history of the alteration of environment by human action, and the reciprocal influence of the environment upon human history. It traces the long history of geographical shifts in human occupation, the difficult path to industrialization, the forced displacements and destruction of forests and marshes, the state-led industrialization in response to poverty and the destruction of forests due to European colonialism.
