0 Recensies
The interaction between humans and their natural environment today is unprecedented in its scope and complexity, and recent scholarly research attests to the need for a multidisciplinary approach to fully study it. Mappae Mundi answers this call for a scholarly synthesis, illuminating dominant social trends affecting the relationship between human societies and the environment.

Contributors discuss this relationship, and analyze several different possibilities for the future. Mappae Mundi will appeal to social scientists or anyone interested in the current and future consequences of our interaction with the natural environment.
