Description

Located in a wide spectrum of current research and practice, from analyses of green ideology and imagery, enviromental law and policy, and local enviromental activism in the West to ethnographic studies of relationships between humans and their enviroments in hunter/gatherer societies, Enviromentalism: The View from Anthropology offers an original perspective on what is probably the best-known issue of the late twentieth century.

It will be particularly useful to all social scientists interested in environmentalism and human ecology, to environmental policy-makers and to undergraduates, lecturers and researchers in social anthropology, development studies and sociology.

Reviews

`Here anthropologists, long marginal to this area of work, add their distinctive voices to the debates on environmentalism and the quest for a more viable future. … These conversations on conservation force us to reflect on the rhetoric on the international environmental movement and ponder the plight of those denied a voice in the environmental culture wars of the late twentieth century. They are also just plain fun to read. Index, chapter-end references.' - Population & Development Review
