Summary
  • "Recent claims regarding convergence and divergence between land change science and political ecology as approaches to the study of human-environment relationships and sustainability science are examined and analysed in this innovative volume. Comprised of twelve commissioned chapters as well as introductory and concluding/synthesis chapters, it advances the two fields by proposing new conceptual and methodological approaches toward integrating land change science and political ecology. The book also identifies areas of fundamental difference and disagreement between fields. These theoretical contributions will help a generation of young researchers refine their research approaches and will advance a debate among established scholars in geography, land use studies and sustainability science that has been developing in recent years. At an empirical level, case studies focusing on sustainable development are included from Africa, Central and South America, and South-east Asia. The specific topics addressed include tropical deforestation, swidden agriculture, mangrove forests, gender and household issues"--
