Ecology and Empire: Environmental History of Settler Societies

 
9780869809372: Ecology and Empire: Environmental History of Settler Societies

"Ecology" and "Empire" forged a historical partnership of great power - and one which radically changed human and natural history across the globe. This book scrutinizes European expansion from the perspectives of the so-called colonized "peripheries", the settler societies. Contributors include many of historians and historical geographers writing in Australia, Africa, Europe and America.

Review:

In this important compilation of new work, Tom Griffiths and Libby Robin reflect on the nature of ecology and empire - combining the essences, as Griffith puts it, of power and innocence...The book sets itself apart from the typically self-regarding US tradition in environmental history by insisting on presenting environmental history on a regional and global comparative scale. 'Think locally, but act globally' becomes more than a bumper sticker in their capable hands. This text, already a primer in its field, will help anyone wishing to take up the task.
