About this book

Neil Roberts' exciting new book explores the changing relations between the natural world and human cultures around the Mediterranean Sea since the end of the last ice age. He shows how human agency interacting with a dynamic environment has transformed Mediterranean landscapes, and brings together evidence from diverse sources to explore notions such as landscape dereliction and the search for pristine nature. An historical perspective is critical to understanding not only how the Mediterranean world has taken on its present form, but also to how it might evolve in the future. The Mediterranean World: An Environmental History provides a major contribution in that direction.
