Abstract:

This book shows that today's challenges of causing and reacting to environmental change, can be better approached through an attempt to understand how societies in the past dealt with similar circumstances. The contributors draw on archaeological research in multiple regions--North America, Mesoamerica, Europe, the Near East, and Africa--from time periods spanning the Holocene, and from environments ranging from tropical forest to desert. They show that by examining long-term trajectories of socio-natural relationships we can better define concepts such as sustainability, land degradation, and conservation-and that gaining a more accurate and complete understanding of these connections is essential for evaluating current theories and models of environmental degradation and conservation.
