Northern Europe: An Environmental History

by

Northern Europe: An Environmental History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Of interest to students and academics alike, this book provides a much-needed synthesis of the recent literature on northern Europe's environmental history. Beginning with the Paleolithic period and the recolonization of Europe after the Ice Age, this book maps out the key environmental trends in the history of the region's environment and its interaction with the human population.

The book also highlights how dramatic events outside Europe, such as the Tomboro volcanic eruption in Indonesia in 1815, had dramatic consequences for the region's climate. Given the culturally diverse nature of modern Europe, a vital aspect of the book is its identification of the common themes that unite the interaction of the region's nation-states with the natural environment.

Book News Annotation:

Historians Whited (Indiana U. of Pennsylvania), Jens I. Engels (Frieburg U., Germany), and Richard C. Hoffmann (York U., Toronto); Helde Ibsen (environmental studies, Karlstads U., Sweden); and Wybren Berstegen (ecological and economic history, Free U. Amsterdam) trace the interaction of humans with the rest of the environment in northern Europe from before the most recent ice age to the consumer revolution and green reaction after World War II. They conclude with case studies of fuel resources and wastelands in the Netherlands around 1800, the German Green Party, and the Scandinavian experience from nature conversation to sustainable development. A chronology, a glossary without pronunciation guides, and bibliographic essays for each chapter are included.
