Media reviews
?While the reference literature of human ecology is well established, this timely work is the first volume in this field to focus specifically on the complex political and social interactions of indigenous populations with outside threats of development, whether corporate or governmental in nature....Given the highly scattered nature of much of the primary documentation on this issue, this moderately-priced resource belongs in the science collections of all large public libraries as well as college and university libraries supporting undergraduate and graduate programs in anthropology, geography, environmental management, political science and history. Law libraries wishing to have a review of the major locations and conflicts to supplement the coverage of specific cases and points of domestic or international law will also find it of value.?-E-Streams
