  • From energy to waste: the main themes of environmental history at a glance
  • Leading specialists summarizes information and knowledge
  • Not just an introduction: critical approach and updated bibliography introduce to the core of historical debate

This book is an introductory instrument to the main themes of environmental history, illustrating its development over time, methodological implications, results achieved and those still under discussion. But the overriding aspiration is to show that the doubts, methods and knowledge elaborated by environmental history have a heuristic value that is far from negligible precisely in its attitude to the most consolidated major historiography.  For this reason, this book gives an overview of environmental history as it is an essential component of  the basic knowledge of global history. At the same time, it introduces specific aspects which are useful both for anyone wanting to deepen his/her studies of environmental historiography and for those interested in one of the many disciplinary areas – from rural history to urban history, from the history of technology to the history of public health, etc. with which environmental history develops a dialogue.
