The third volume in the reader series, ’Themes in Environmental History’.Comprising essays selected from our journals, Environment and History and Environmental Values, these inexpensive paperbacks address important aspects of environmental history, by means of theoretical essays and case studies. Indigenous Knowledge investigates how indigenous peoples from various cultures interact with and conceptualise their environments, past and present; it offers accounts of indigenous conservation practice and traditional environmental knowledge alongside challenging explorations of how ’knowledge’ is filtered through ideologies and subjectivities, from the Western scientific worldview to individual memory.
