This major work of historical ecology advances the integration of research on environmental and social systems, contributing important lessons for contemporary natural resource policy and management. A diverse, international region, the Pyrenees has been characterized as a quintessential example of rural areas across Europe and North America. The authors use qualitative and quantitative methods from economics, history, anthropology, and ecological science to integrate human agency and ecology across a landscape that moved from agricultural and pastoral production to industrialization, then experienced acute depopulation, and now is becoming a focus of conservation and tourism. The book shows how today’s most pressing resource policy challenges are best illuminated by this broad, long-term understanding of humans and landscapes.

About the Author:

Ismael Vaccaro holds a joint appointment in the Department of Anthropology and the School of Environment at McGill University and director of the Neotropical Environmental Option (McGill and Smithsonian Tropical Institute).Oriol Beltran is associate professor of social anthropology at Universitat de Barcelona, and co-author of Between Love and Interest: The Process of Val d’Aran Marriage (Grasineau 1993)and The Aranese House: Anthropology of Architecture in the Val d’Aran (1997).

Review:

"Social and Ecological History of the Pyrenees is a most welcome addition to the anthropological literature, especially for scholars specializing in environmental anthropology, policy studies, pastoralism, and globalization (or glocalization). This is a worthy contribution to the relatively scant English-language Pyrenean literature. It is timely, relevant, and reminds us what ethnography can and should be in the twenty-first century." - Bryan Cummins, Journal of Anthropological Research
