Ecology and Power in the Age of Empire

Europe and the Transformation of the Tropical World

Corey Ross

  • The first wide-ranging environmental history of the heyday of European imperialism, from the late nineteenth century to the end of the colonial era
  • Provides a historical perspective on the vital nexus of social, political, and environmental issues that we face in the twenty-first-century world
  • Offers a broad chronological coverage, enabling understanding of change over time, which is crucial to assessing the ecological impact of modern imperialism
  • Facilitates the drawing of connections and comparisons between the environmental histories of European empires, rather than the usual British-empire-centric studies
