Social Anthropology
By critically examining the role of the local and global within the lived experiences of the enviroment, this collection is a valuable addition to the debated on enviromental understanding in the social sciences.

Gisli Palsson
Attentive to both thick description and general processes, exploring and critically engaging with the concepts of the local and the global, Confronting Environments represents an important moment in the revival and rethinking of environmental anthropology. Situating themselves at different ethnographic sites, the authors disentangle the 'environment' as well as the politics and abstractions frequently used to represent it. This book is to be recommended for environmentalists and students of human-environmental relations. It is a timely project, given the urgency of environmental problems and our failures to adequately act and to understand.
