Book Cover
A Companion to Global Environmental History

A Companion to Global Environmental History orients readers to this dynamic, fast-growing field and provides an essential reference to current issues and controversies within the research arena. Bringing together environmental historians from around the world, the Companion surveys past developments in scholarship, current contours of the field, and possible approaches for the future.

Four themed sections encompass temporal, geographic, and thematic approaches from prehistory to the present day, offering multiple points of entry into the substance and historiography of global environmental history. Chapters explore environmental processes, thought, and action across time and place to give readers a historical, cultural, and political context for engagement with the environment in modern times. The Companion is a road map, not only for scholars and students who are coming to environmental history for the first time, but also for professional historians and specialists looking for comparative perspectives.
