9780415781565: Environmental Anthropology Today

Today, we face some of the greatest environmental challenges in global history. Understanding the damage being done and the varied ethics and efforts contributing to its repair is of vital importance. This volume poses the question: What can increasing the emphasis on the environment in environmental anthropology, along with the science of its problems and the theoretical and methodological tools of anthropological practice, do to aid conservation efforts, policy initiatives, and our overall understanding of how to survive as citizens of the planet?

Environmental Anthropology Today combines a range of new ethnographic work with chapters exploring key theoretical and methodological issues, and draws on disciplines such as sociology and environmental science as well as anthropology to illuminate those issues. The case studies include work on North America, Europe, India, Africa, Asia, and South America, offering the reader a stimulating and thoughtful survey of the work currently being conducted in the field.

About the Author:

Helen Kopnina is based at the Institute for Advanced Labour Studies at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Her books include East to West Migration (Ashgate) and Crossing European Boundaries (Berghahn).

Eleanor Shoreman-Ouimet is a member of the Anthropology Department at the University of Connecticut, USA. Her research focuses on conservation, agriculture and environmentalism amongst rural communities.

Review:

"An excellent collection that exemplifies the value of ecologically sensitive and informed anthropological research for shedding light on environmental problems and issues. The contributions demonstrate that environmental anthropology has become an essential component of environmental social science."

- Riley E. Dunlap, Oklahoma State University, USA
