Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
This book is the first comprehensive, global treatment of landesque capital, a widespread concept used to understand anthropogenic landscapes that serve important economic, social and ritual purposes. Spanning the disciplines of anthropology, human ecology, geography, archaeology and history, chapters combine theoretical rigour with in-depth empirical studies of major landscape modifications from ancient to contemporary times. They assess not only degradation but also the social, political and economic institutions and contexts that make sustainability possible. Offering tightly edited, original contributions from leading scholars, this book will have a lasting influence on the study long-term human-environment relations in the human and natural sciences.
