Ecology and Power

Ecology and Power: Struggles Over Land and Material Resources in the Past, Present, and Future

Edited by Alf Hornborg, Brett Clark & Kenneth Hermele

Routledge, 2012

Power and social inequality shape patterns of land use and resource management. Ecology and Power explores this relationship from different perspectives, illuminating the complexity of interactions between human societies and nature. Most of the contributors use the perspective of “political ecology” as a point of departure, recognizing that human relations to the environment and human social relations are not separate phenomena but inextricably intertwined. What makes this volume unique is that it sets this approach in a trans-disciplinary, global, and historical framework.
