Publisher's Summary:
While the relationship between man and nature has been a constant feature of the human situation, the human impact on the environment has only recently become a topic of general interest to students, as well as to scholars and professionals in disciplines across the board. This three-volume set, written by a team of international experts, provides not only broad historical coverage on how human beliefs and actions have altered the natural world, but also covers the latest developments in the field. An analysis of natural phenomena and events and their impact on human societies is also included. With over 500 articles, this fascinating set will prove a definitive reference source on environmental change over the course of human history, across cultures and in the modern world. This important new work belongs in any collection serving world history, ecology, environmental studies, geography or environmental science programs. Entries include: * Acid Rain * Africa * Air Pollution * Alternative Energy * Biodiversity * Central Asia * Chernobyl * China * Debt for Nature * Deforestation * Earthquakes * Environmental Law * Environmental Crime * Famine * Green Revolution * Global Warming * Gulf War * Law of the Sea * Rainforests * Roman Empire * Social Ecology * Toxicity * Tragedy of the Commons * Volcanoes * World Trade Organization * World Wildlife Fund * And many more.
