Landscapes and the Law

Environmental Politics, Regional Histories, and Contests over Nature

Gunnel Cederlöf

  • Landscapes and the Law is as relevant today as it was a decade ago, when first published.
  • It is situated at the crossroads of environmental, colonial, and legal history. It examines the role of law in consolidating early colonial rule from the perspective of people's access to nature in forests and hill tracts.
  • It is concerned thus with the social history of legal processes and the making of law.
