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.* 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* Offers a unique perspective on current interest in cross-cultural environmental relations* Divided into five thematic sections: (1) the nature/culture divide; (2) relationship between environment and social organization; (3) methodological debates and innovations; (4) politics and practice; and (5) 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
