Happy Earth Day! Check out some of our recent and forthcoming titles in Environmental Studies to celebrate.
In Beyond the Sacred Forest: Complicating Conservation in Southeast Asia, scholars rethink the translation of environmental concepts between East and West, particularly ideas of nature and culture; what conservation might mean; and how conservation policy is applied and transformed in the everyday landscapes of Southeast Asia.
In The Struggle for Maize: Campesinos, Workers, and Transgenic Corn in the Mexican Countryside, Elizabeth Fitting argues that maize biodiversity in central and southern Mexico is threatened as much by rural out-migration as by the flow of genes from genetically modified to local corn varieties.
Global Climate Change: A Primer, by Orrin H. Pilkey and Keith C. Pilkey, takes on climate change deniers in an outstanding and much-needed primer on the science of global change and its effects. Suitable for students or interested laypeople, it's illustrated with gorgeous full-color reproductions of batiks by artist Mary Edna Fraser. Available in July.
