The Global Present and Long-term History

Edited by Professor Gunnel Cederlöf and Professor Mahesh Rangarajan

  • The authors are leading environmental historians, anthropologists, and ecologists who unpack complex and critical environmental issues in a nuanced yet lucid way.
  • It illumines the way to think about the environmental crisis from a long-term perspective even as it gives cause for hope of change for the better.
