Man and Nature in Asia

The implication that environmental degradation has only occurred in Asia as a product of Westernization ignores Asia’s long history of environmental degradation and disaster. The principal aim of this series is to encourage critical research into the human-nature relationship in Asia.


The series’ multi-disciplinary approach invites studies in a number of topics: how people make a living from nature; their knowledge and perception of their natural environment and how this is reflected in their praxis; indigenous systems of resource management; environmental problems, movements and campaigns; and many more.


The series will be of particular interest to anthropologists, geographers, historians, political scientists and sociologists, as well as to policy makers and those interested in development and environmental issues in Asia.


This series was edited by Arne Kalland of the University of Oslo, Norway, but is no longer accepting new manuscripts.
