Environmental issues have become increasingly prominent in local struggles, national debates, and international policies. In response, scholars are paying more attention to conventional politics and to more broadly defined relations of power and difference in the interactions between human groups and their biophysical environments.

Environmental issues have become increasingly prominent in local struggles, national debates, and international policies. Such issues are at the heart of the relatively new interdisciplinary field of political ecology, forged at the intersection of political economy and cultural ecology.

Environmental issues have become increasingly prominent in local struggles, national debates, and international policies. In response, scholars are paying more attention to conventional politics and to more broadly defined relations of power and difference in the interactions between human groups and their biophysical environments. Such issues are at the heart of the relatively new interdisciplinary field of political ecology, forged at the intersection of political economy and cultural ecology.This volume provides a toolkit of vital concepts and a set of research models and analytic frameworks for researchers at all levels. The two opening chapters trace rich traditions of thought and practice that inform current approaches to political ecology. They point to the entangled relationship between humans, politics, economies, and environments at the dawn of the twenty-first century and address challenges that scholars face in navigating the blurring boundaries among relevant fields of enquiry.  The twelve case studies that follow demonstrate ways that culture and politics serve to mediate human-environmental relationships in specific ecological and geographical contexts. Taken together, they describe uses of and conflicts over resources including land, water, soil, trees, biodiversity, money, knowledge, and information; they exemplify wide-ranging ecological settings including deserts, coasts, rainforests, high mountains, and modern cities; and they explore sites located around the world, from Canada to Tonga and cyberspace.

Excellent!

Political Ecology across Spaces, Scales, and Social Groups is an important advance in work being done in the interdisciplinary field of political ecology. The two introductory chapters provide an extensively referenced outline of the field's historical emergence, as well as consideration of various new paths and concerns taken up by the field. The volume's contributors emphasize the importance of viewing social processes in relation to and of consequence for environmental processes and outcomes. Several pieces in the volume nicely address concerns raised by several scholars critical of political ecology approaches, such as the claim that, by apparently privileging analysis of political processes and struggles in their work, political ecologists have forsaken ecology. This particular critique appears unfounded in the end. The volume's contributors solidly reaffirm the place that attention to political processes-as one of several analytical points of consideration-holds in the holistic analysis of environmental problems. (It might be kept in mind that political ecologists do not claim to be doing `strict' ecological analyses, but this in no way means that these scholars eschew ecological analysis as part of an interdisciplinary field requiring the collaboration of researchers and analysts from a broad range of disciplines). The volume offers a new set of case studies (of a broad geographical range), analytical concepts, and addresses various methodological problems throughout, all of which will be satisfying for scholars and practitioners already familiar with the field. Excellent editing makes the volume enjoyable to read, and accessible to students becoming acquainted with the perspectives of political ecology. I highly suggest this book to anyone interested in the relationship between social and environmental processes and problems!
