  4. Environmental Anthropology: Now Available

    This volume presents new theoretical approaches, methodologies, subject pools, and topics in the field of environmental anthropology. Environmental anthropologists are increasingly focusing on self-reflection - not just on themselves and their impacts on environmental research, but also on the reflexive qualities of their subjects, and the extent to which these individuals are questioning their own environmental behavior. Here, contributors confront the very notion of "natural resources" in granting non-human species their subjectivity and arguing for deeper understanding of "nature," and "wilderness" beyond the label of "ecosystem services."

  5. New Tim Ingold: Making - Anthropology, Archaeology, Art and Architecture

    The latest book from renowned anthropologist Tim Ingold takes a profound new approach to the study of four related disciplines and seeks to tie them together. Ingold considers anthropology, archaeology, art and architecture as ways of making, involving the creation of knowledge, the building of environments and the transformation of lives.
