Annotation:Taking an anthropological approach to development and environment studies, this collection of essays uses case studies from Asia and Africa to examine the dynamics between nature and culture. Focusing especially on food and issues relating to land and water use, the contributors explore how cultural images, myths, symbols, and worldviews influence how humans use and manage natural resources. Seeking to advance sustainable development, this volume emphasizes local knowledge and attends to issues of power and distribution.
