Published: Dec 11, 1998

Description:

  • Bioregionalism* is the first book to explain the theoretical and practical dimensions of bioregionalism from an interdisciplinary standpoint, focusing on the place of bioregional identity within global politics. Leading contributors from a broad range of disciplines introduce this exciting new concept as a framework for thinking about indigenous peoples, local knowledge, globalization, science, global environmental issues, modern society, conservation, history, education and restoration. Bioregionalism's emphasis on place and community radically changes the way we confront human and ecological issues.

Review

'This is an extremely well written and put together anthology' - Environmental Ethics, Winter 2001

'Provides as extremely useful and very readable introduction to the field of bioregionalism, and at the same time it relates bioregionalism to a number of important issues and challenges of our time. It will be of interest to more than just professed bioregionalists, and its academic readership will be wide-ranging in numerous disciplines.' - Ecumene
