Description

The Encyclopedia of World Environmental History provides much-needed explanation of urgent social and environmental issues – from urbanization to water shortages, climate change to the extinction of species – in articles replete with the stories of human and natural history. World historians, anthropologists, geographers, and biologists from around the world have pooled their knowledge to trace the interaction of humankind and nature over the course of human history, across cultures, and in the modern world. In more than 500 accessible, lively articles emphasizing cross-cultural exchange, diffusion, and change over time, these scholars demonstrate why the approaches of environmental history are having such wide influence. This essential work belongs in any collection serving world history, ecology, environmental studies, geography, or environmental science programs.
