Summary

This short, versatile book clearly and concisely illustrates the central concepts and general principles of cultural ecology. It introduces students to the topic of ecological anthropology by presenting illustrative ethnographic cases of hunter-gatherer, pastoralist, and agricultural societies. This treatment includes information on human-environment intervention, especially in the sections of East African pastoralism and peasant cultivation in Switzerland.
