Ecologies of the Heart

Emotion, Belief, and the Environment

E. N. Anderson

Cultural ecologist Gene Anderson has spent his life exploring the ways in which different groups of native peoples manage the environment. In this book, he mixes anthropology with ecology and psychology, traditional myth and folklore with informed discussions of conservative efforts in industrial society, to reveal a strikingly new approach to our current environmental crisis.
