Product Synopsis

The editors of this work bring together research on the relations between people and the planet's living and non living resources. Its three main foci include the methodological approaches to the study of relationships between people and land use, patterns of consumption, population trends and the availability of food and water resources an examination of evidence of disequilibria in increasing conflicts, migrations, and over-crowding and a search for balance between people and the other elements of the biosphere through understanding and overcoming destructive forces. This work is intended for use in departments of politics, environmental studies and sociology (courses on population studies, development studies), and for those with a general interest.
