Environmental History of Modern Migrations, Hardback Book

Environmental History of Modern Migrations Hardback

Edited by Marco Armiero, Richard Tucker

Part of the Routledge Environmental Humanities series

Description

In the age of climate change, the possibility that dramatic environmental transformations might cause the dislocation of millions of people has become not only a matter for scientific speculation or science-fiction narratives, but the object of strategic planning and military analysis.

Environmental History of Modern Migrations offers a worldwide perspective on the history of migrations throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and provides an opportunity to reflect on the global ecological transformations and developments which have occurred throughout the last few centuries.

With a primary focus on the environment/migration nexus, this book advocates that global environmental changes are not distinct from global social transformations.

Instead, it offers a progressive method of combining environmental and social history, which manages to both encompass and transcend current approaches to environmental justice issues. This edited collection will be of great interest to students and practitioners of environmental history and migration studies, as well as those with an interest in history and sociology.
