    Springer 2010; US$ 149.00

In the interpretation... more...

    University Press of Florida 2013; US$ 74.95

    Most research into humans' impact on the environment has focused on large-scale societies; a corollary assumption has been that small scale economies are sustainable and in harmony with nature.
