Description - Environmental Challenges in South-East Asia by Victor T. King
Issues of environmental change, natural resource exploitation and the prospects for ecological substainability in South-East Asia have generated a considerable amount of scholarly research in recent years. Conflicts over the use of natural resources and the effects of commercial logging in the region have commanded particular attention from the international media as well as environmental NGOs and the pressure groups. The study of these human-environmental interactions is especially well-suited to cross-disciplinary research and comparative region-wide analyses. This volume presents the findings of recent archival and field research on the environment by sociologists, geographers, anthropologists, economists, political economists and historians, mainly from ongoing programmes of team research based in European universities and institutes.
Among the themes discussed are European and indigenous perceptions of the environment; historical processes of environmental change; the politics of resource use; ecotourism and development; deforestation and smallholding land-use strategies; migration and environmental degradation; disease environment and human geography; demography, sustainability and resource exploitation.
