Indigenous Enviromental Knowledge and its Transformations : Critical Anthropological Perspectives Paperback / softback
Edited by Alan Bicker, Roy Ellen, Peter Parkes
Part of the Studies in Environmental Anthropology series
The first concerted critical examination of the uses and abuses of indigenous knowledge.

In particular they explore the problems of translation and mistranslation in the local-global transference of traditional practices and representations of resources.
