Environmental Anthropology studies historic and present human-environment interactions. This volume illustrates the ways in which today's environmental anthropologists are constructing new paradigms for understanding the multiplicity of players, pressures, and ecologies in every environment, and the value of cultural knowledge of landscapes.

This Handbook provides a comprehensive survey of contemporary topics in environmental anthropology and thorough discussions on the current state and prospective future of the field in seven key sections. As the contributions to this Handbook demonstrate, the subfield of environmental anthropology is responding to cultural adaptations and responses to environmental changes in multiple and complex ways. As a discipline concerned primarily with human-environment interaction, environmental anthropologists recognize that we are now working within a pressure cooker of rapid environmental damage that is forcing behavioural and often cultural changes around the world. As we see in the breadth of topics presented in this volume, these environmental challenges have inspired renewed foci on traditional topics such as food procurement, ethnobiology, and spiritual ecology; and a broad new range of subjects, such as resilience, nonhuman rights, architectural anthropology, industrialism, and education. This volume enables scholars and students quick access to both established and trending environmental anthropological explorations into theory, methodology and practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"It is an informative and enlightening read for accomplished academics and new scholars in anthropology, ecology and conservation or similar related disciplines. Although geared primarily toward social anthropologists this book provides a plentiful source of up-to-date references and case studies for anyone with a general interest in environmental anthropology or wishing to delve deeper into associated subject areas, coming from a biological conservation or social science background. It offers a uniquely holistic overview of anthropology, taking as its point of departure pressing environmental challenges, whilst effectively conveying the message that anthropologists should look beyond their subject and adopt an interdisciplinary approach when exploring social and environmental issues."
