This book provides a lively and thoughtful introduction to ecological anthropology by examining the evolving relations between human communities and nature. Written by a noted anthropologist, geographer, and environmental scientist, this work: reviews the evolution of human interactions with the natural world - drawing from anthropology and geography; explores those aspects of human ecological relations that seem to account for the greater connectedness of certain societies to their physical environment; and, offers a vision for improved relations between humans and nature.
