Thoughts of prominent scholars of political ecology meet up with science and technology studies in this collection of essays. Ably edited by experts in environmental and political learning, the text covers three major themes: the breadth of environmental knowledge; the impact of politics on human behavior in regard to management of nature; and the circulation and practice of new scientific concepts. Educators and students in these fields will find this work a valuable reference to a variety of scientific and policy issues.
