Frank Uekötter (Ed.): The Frontiers of Environmental History
Environmental history has experienced a boom in recent years; and with that, it has begun to develop a certain thematic “canon”. This issue looks beyond the usual range of topics, thus arguing for a broader definition of environmental history.
Which issues and perspectives have received less attention than they deserve? What are the prospects for a more inclusive history of man and the natural world? And how do these new perspectives relate to the emerging orthodoxy in the field?
Taken together, these essays give an impression of the true challenge that environmental history poses to the historical profession as a whole.
