People and Nature

in Historical Perspective
Part of series: 
Publication date: 

This volume presents the wide variety of methods and approaches (historical, archaeological, and natural scientific) now available to scholars studying the relationship between people and nature throughout history. The book consists of two major parts. The first section presents broader frameworks of understanding in the field. The second section focuses on individual case studies that demonstrate those methods and frameworks. While the collection's emphasis is on the Middle Ages, case studies range from the Neolithic to the present day. The book also centers particularly on Central and Eastern Europe, a hitherto neglected region in environmental history. Hopefully this volume will serve as a handbook for scholars interested in the human–nature interactions of the past.
