  • Environmental Transformationsby Mark Whitehead

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 77.95

    From the depths of the oceans to the highest reaches of the atmosphere, the human impact on the environment is significant and undeniable.

This is a geological era defined not by natural environmental fluctuations... more...

  • Remaking The Landscapeby Jennifer Jenkins

    Profile Books 2011; US$ 13.33

    British landscapes - from the tip of Scotland to the toe of Cornwall, including the cities - are under huge pressure from shifting population and increasing travel, climate change, new patterns of work and leisure, and changing farming practices. Many fear that these changes can only damage the landscape, but this is not the whole story. For example,... more...

    The last half century has seen many studies of the origin of the English village.

  • Environmental Imaginaries of the Middle East and North Africaby Diana K. Davis; Edmund Burke III

    Ohio University Press 2011; US$ 23.99

    The landscapes of the Middle East have captured our imaginations throughout history. Images of endless golden dunes, camel caravans, isolated desert oases, and rivers lined with palm trees have often framed written and visual representations of the region. Embedded in these portrayals is the common belief that the environment, in most places, has... more...

  • Indigenous Knowledge and the Environment in Africa and North Americaby David M. Gordon; Shepard Krech III

    Ohio University Press 2012; US$ 47.99

    Indigenous knowledge has become a catchphrase in global struggles for environmental justice. Yet indigenous knowledges are often viewed, incorrectly, as pure and primordial cultural artifacts.
