Environmental Anthropology PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Environmental Anthropology free pdf "Environmental Anthropology: A Reader" is a collection of historically significant readings, dating from early in the twentieth century up to the present, on the cross-cultural study of relations between people and their environment. This book: provides the historical perspective that is typically missing from recent work in environmental anthropology- includes an extensive intellectual history and commentary by the volume's editors- and, offers a unique perspective on current interest in cross-cultural environmental relations. Divided into five thematic sections: the nature/culture divide- relationship between environment and social organization- methodological debates and innovations- politics and practice- and, epistemological issues of environmental anthropology. Organized into a series of paired papers, which 'speak' to each other, designed to encourage readers to make connections that they might not customarily make.
