"Provides the theoretical refinements and ethnographic illustrations necessary for students to grasp the local and the global complexities of environmental anthropology in the 21st century. This text is pedagogically sophisticated, facilitating cognitive development by engaging students in a cultural critique of dominant Western ideologies and institutions and challenging them to consider their individual options for not only a sustainable future, but a more meaningful life."
—Barbara J. Dilly, Creighton University
"The Environment in Anthropology reads like a 'Greatest Hits' of environmental anthropology in recent years. I have taught many of these authors and concepts due to their engaging tone and critical edge; it is empowering to have them all collected here, in a volume structured for conceptual and chronological clarity, without foreclosing on the creativity of this field, still so much under construction. This volume stands as an assemblage of excellent work that invites further contributions. It showcases the range of epistemic approaches and contexts from which what we might call new environmental anthropology is currently emerging."
—Rebecca Hardin, University of Michigan
