Environmental History is one of the most exciting and rapidly expanding new areas of historical study, and it draws upon a wide range of disciplines for its insights and themes. With contributions from historians, geographers, anthropologists and natural scientists, Nature's End provides fifteen essays that cover key themes and methods in the field and address both newcomers and seasoned practitioners. These studies illustrate the diversity of approaches to historic relationships between humans and their environments, but throughout the book connect these to core narratives in more traditional history: the role of the state and institutions, the importance of intellectual fashions and politics, and the role of the sciences and history itself, as well as the importance of ecology, conservation, risk and human destiny.
