Description

Bioregionalism has emerged as the new framework to study the complex relationships between human communities, government institutions and the natural world, and through which to plan and implement environmental policy. Bioregionalists believe that as members of distinct communities, human beings cannot avoid interacting with and being affected by their specific location, place and bioregion: despite modern technology, we are not insulated from nature. Bioregionalism is the first book to explain the theoretical and practical dimensions of bioregionalism from an interdisciplinary standpoint, focusing on the place of bioregional identity within global politics. Leading contributors from a broad range of disciplines introduce bioregionalism as a framework for thinking about indigenous peoples, local knowledge, globalization, science, global environmental issues, modern society, conservation, history, education and restoration. Bioregionalisms emphasis on place and community radically changes the way we confront human and ecological issues. This book offers invaluable understanding and insights for students, activists, theorists, educators and professionals interested in ecological and bioregional topics.
