インドにおける工芸品と持続可能性ハンドブック
Reubens, Rebecca / Kachru, Tanishka (eds.), The Routledge Handbook of Craft and Sustainability in India. 356 pp. 2024:10 (Routledge, UK) <727-838>
ISBN 978-0-367-75748-9 hard ¥62,909.- (税込) GB£ 215.00

Traditional crafts have been an essential part of Indian history, culture and life. This handbook looks at craft as both a cultural artefact that reflects people's worldviews, indigenous practices and traditions, as well as a source of income generation and development that is inclusive.India's rapid development has meant a break-down of traditional economies, and including craft production-to-consumption systems. Meanwhile, there is a call to action from different factions to protect, revive and reinvent craft, because the inherent sustainability of the systems that underpin it are essential for the sustainability of India and her people. Against this backdrop, this book examines the current landscape of craft in India-its production and marketing in different parts of India, the incorporation of innovation and technology, the push for sustainability and equitability in the handicraft ecosystem and promising government policies that have proved beneficial for craftspeople. It also discusses various challenges that artisans, micro-entrepreneurs, and marketers face working in the space. With contributions from leading experts in the field of design, activism, policy, education, cultural heritage and entrepreneurship, this volume provides a comprehensive and in-depth picture of the history, economics and future of craft and its relationship with sustainability.An authoritative resource on Indian craft, this handbook will be useful for scholars and researchers of sustainable development, development studies, architecture, design, heritage studies, cultural studies, political economy and public policy.

Snel, Marielle / Sorensen, Nikolas / Power, Reed, Climate Change and Water Scarcity in the Middle East: A Transitional Approach. (Earthscan Studies in Water Resource Management) 126 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <727-860>
ISBN 978-1-03-256670-2 hard ¥14,626.- (税込) GB£ 49.99 *

As water's significance as a geopolitical resource is poised to surpass that of oil, this book explores the adaptation of Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) services in the Middle East to climate change challenges, leveraging the Humanitarian-Development-Peace nexus for a sustainable transition and resilient solutions. Delving into the humanitarian and development sectors across the region, the authors advocate for a transformative approach towards more innovative, integrated, and localized programming. It draws a parallel between the increasing global shift in humanitarian needs, as starkly revealed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the ongoing devastation wrought by climate change, particularly through water-related crises such as flooding, drought, famine, and conflict. The authors stress the urgent need for adaptive and sustainable strategies that can swiftly respond to evolving climate challenges. This book argues that there is currently a window of opportunity for WASH practitioners to develop broader, multi-sectoral experiences to meet these challenges. Drawing on discussions with humanitarian and development practitioners and new contemporary case studies, this book analyzes the financial, institutional, environmental, technical, and socio-cultural considerations for creating sustainable WASH services in transition. The narrative emphasizes the urgent need for a Humanitarian-Development-Peace nexus approach, advocating for multisectoral collaboration and localization as vital to addressing protracted crises and climate change's escalating threats. It calls for a strategic shift towards organizations that merge immediate humanitarian aid with sustainable development, enhancing local capacities for effective, enduring solutions. The authors conclude by outlining practical actions for humanitarian and development organizations at the local, national, regional, and global levels to support effective integrated and transitional WASH programming in the future.

Kaltmeier, Olaf / Acker, Antoine et al. (eds.), Biodiversity: Handbook of the Anthropocene in Latin America II. (The Anthropocene as Multiple Crisis: Perspectives from Latin America) 300 S. 2024:6 (Bielefedl U. Pr., GW) <727-898>
ISBN 978-3-8376-7012-7 paper ¥10,793.- (税込) EUR 44.00

Biodiversity should not be understood in biological terms only and as a thing apart from society, but rather as biocultural diversity present in the social world and in various cultures. Such a perspective might allow to relieve social conflicts as well as abuses of power, and slow the appropriation of the biosphere. This volume of the Handbook ≫The Anthropocene as Multiple Crisis≪ focuses on biodiversity in the main macro-regions of Latin America from the colonial regime to the contemporary era of the Anthropocene. The contributions enrich contemporary debates surrounding the genealogy of the Anthropocene in Latin America with critical perspectives from the social sciences and the humanities.

ISBN 978-3-8376-7011-0 paper ¥10,793.- (税込) EUR 44.00

Socio-ecological conflicts about land use in Latin America are complex: they involve various actors and flare up due to the dynamics of colonization, spatial appropriation, and the commodification of land. This volume of the Handbook ≫The Anthropocene as Multiple Crisis≪ focuses on land use in the main macro-regions of Latin America from the colonial regime to the contemporary era of the Anthropocene. The contributions touch upon numerous aspects, from the transformations of material to the social practices, their political and legal regulations as well as the imaginaries of virgin territories. Consequently, far from limiting themselves to a static cartography of land use, the contributors investigate the appropriations of borders and historic transformations in land use.

Ernsten, Christian / Shepherd, Nick (eds.), Walking as Embodied Research: Drift, Pause, Indirection. 272 pp. 2024:9 (Routledge, UK) <727-9>
ISBN 978-1-03-201022-9 hard ¥38,038.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This volume explores walking as a form of research practice. The contributions by a wide range of scholars and practitioners cover a variety of urban and non-urban landscapes around the world. They describe and reflect on ways of working that involve walking, and the kinds of ideas that inspire walking practices. A key theme is embodied research and how the act of walking brings the body into presence as a material part of the research process. The book also examines the ways in which walking opens out to multi-sensorial understandings and appreciations of landscape, and touches on ideas of presence and witnessing. Landscapes are themselves considered to be in motion, subject to the changing regimes of the era that we inhabit and the effects of Anthropogenic climate change. Finally, walking is thought about as political intervention and the volume addresses questions of social justice, decolonial futures and alternative forms of knowledge. It will serve as a source of inspiration to readers from across the humanities and social sciences who are interested in walking methodologies and in new and sustainable research practices.

ジェンダーと水のガバナンス・ハンドブック
Acevedo-Guerrero, Tatiana / Bossenbroek, Lisa et al. (eds.), Routledge Handbook of Gender and Water Governance. (Routledge Environment and Sustainability Handbooks) 392 pp. 2024:10 (Routledge, UK) <727-913>
ISBN 978-0-367-60758-6 hard ¥62,909.- (税込) GB£ 215.00

This handbook provides a comprehensive overview of the field of gender and water governance, exploring how the use, management and knowledge of water resources, services and the water environment are deeply gendered.In water there is a recognized gender gap between water responsibilities and water rights and bridging this gap is likely to help achieve not just goals of equity but also those of sustainability. Building on a rich legacy of feminist water scholarship, the Routledge Handbook of Gender and Water Governance is a collection of reflections and studies that can be used as a prismatic lens into a thriving and ever proliferating array of feminist water studies. It provides a clear testimony of how hydrofeminism has evolved from rather instrumental gender and water studies to scholarship that uses feminist tools to pry open, critically reflect on and formulate alternatives to water development-as-usual. The book also shows how the community of feminists interested in studying water has diversified and expanded, from often white female scholars studying projects and gender relations in the so-called Global South, to a varied mix of scholars and activists theorizing from diverse geographical and political locations - prominently including the body. It is organized into five interconnected parts:* Part I: Positionality and embodied waters* Part II: Revisiting water debates: diplomacy, security, justice and heritage* Part III: Sanitation stories* Part IV: Precarious livelihoods* Part V: New feminist futuresEach of these parts brings out the gendered nature of water, shedding light on the often neglected care and unpaid labour of women and its relationship with extractivism and socioeconomic inequalities. The overall aim of the handbook is to apply social science insights to water governance challenges, creating synergies and linkages between different disciplines and scientific domains.The Routledge Handbook of Gender and Water Governance is essential reading for students, scholars and professionals interested in water governance, water security, health and sanitation, gender studies and sustainable development more broadly.

ISBN 978-0-367-65012-4 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00
ISBN 978-0-367-65005-6 paper ¥10,530.- (税込) GB£ 35.99

This book takes a thematic approach to the global history of water, covering a wide range of human interactions with water and the ways in which it carries both life and death.Water is one of the most common and valuable natural resources for the survival of individual people and civilizations. As the Anthropocene brings the unpredictable challenges of climate change, population growth, and global industrialization and urbanism, issues of water scarcity and availability will be ever-growing, and both the presence and absence of water can be sources of far-reaching disaster. The book argues that a deeper understanding of water's history is essential for navigating these changes. The chapters discuss water and religion, floods and disasters, water engineering and waterpower, the history of drinking water, water parks and leisure, the history of underwater exploration, and the history of drought and water scarcity. Each chapter is global in scope and is told over a broad chronology, with complementary case studies.Water in World History is an accessible introduction to water history and is an ideal resource for undergraduate students in environmental history and world history courses.

海岸砂丘のグローバルな環境史
de Freitas, Joana Gaspar, A Global Environmental History of Coastal Dunes. (Routledge Environmental History) 264 pp. 2024:9 (Routledge, UK) <727-918>
ISBN 978-1-03-232925-3 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

This book provides a holistic perspective on coastal dunes, highlighting new insights into present day challenges to show that narratives, along with numbers, graphics and computer models, have a role to play in climate change science, policymaking, and citizenship awareness.Adopting a cross-disciplinary approach, this book combines fiction, history and science, to discuss past, present, and future ways of living in coastal areas. Dunes are hybrid environments, a combination of natural elements and human agency; they tell stories of values, traditional wisdom, institutions, empires, technology, vulnerabilities, coastal management, adaptation, and sustainability. Drawing on the past, Joana Gaspar de Freitas unpacks a diverse and fascinating history of dunes, linking knowledge, methods, and approaches from several case studies across the world, including France, Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, New Zealand, USA, and the UK. The book connects the bio geophysics of global change with the main driver of transformation - human agency - to integrate and address nature-society issues, taking human and nonhuman agents into account. In following the choices, paths, and strategies that created today's coastal landscapes, the book generates greater awareness and understanding of how to shape coastal futures.This is an engaging, original and, fundamentally, important book that fills a gap in our knowledge of cities, infrastructure, economies, and cultures built on shorelines. A key read for scholars, researchers, and students in environmental history, environmental science, sustainability, coastal land management, and climate change.

Fopp, David / Axelsson, Isabelle / Tille, Loukina, The Youth Climate Uprising: From the School Strike Movement to an Ecophilosophy of Democracy. (X-Texte zu Kultur und Gesellschaft) 430 S. 2024:2 (Transcript, GW) <727-920>
ISBN 978-3-8376-7031-8 paper ¥6,132.- (税込) EUR 25.00

Species are going extinct, forests are burning, and children are worried about the future and their peers worldwide. But that is not the whole story: One Friday in 2018, a few young people joined Greta Thunberg to protest, and the global climate strike movement was born. Scientist David Fopp spent 250 Fridays with the newly formed grassroots movement. Together with activists Isabelle Axelsson and Loukina Tille, he offers an insider perspective on this fight for a globally just and sustainable society. They also turn their focus to science and our political engagement: How can research in all disciplines help with this struggle? And how can we all fight the climate crisis by transforming and deepening democracy?

Goodman, James / Morton, Tom (eds.), From 'Carbon Democracy' to 'Climate Democracy'? (Rethinking Globalizations) 168 pp. 2024:10 (Routledge, UK) <727-922>
ISBN 978-1-03-276494-8 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

What are the democratic requirements for effective climate action? how can 'climate democracy' be conceptualised?Liberal democracies emerged on the back of fossil fuels, creating what Tim Mitchell called 'carbon democracy' (2011). Three decades of climate policy have affirmed the controlling influence of fossil fuel interests. Runaway climate change now threatens the very foundations of social life. Today we face a very clear democratic question, of whether the fossil fuel sector has the right to determine the planet's climate future. Achieving global energy transformation at the scope and scale needed requires a democratic transformation, to overcome the stranglehold. This book examines these requirements. It debates the political constituencies, agendas and institutions that are emerging from climate crisis, comparing evidence of emergent themes. New claims are emerging, for 'green deals', 'climate justice', 'energy justice', 'energy democracy' and 'de-growth', reflecting a new intensity of contestation as climate change impacts deepen.This book will be of great relevance to students, researchers and policymakers with an interest in comparative politics, democracy studies, climate change and environmental policies. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of Globalizations.

Harding, Richard / Anderson, Ross / de Ruyter, Mick, Oceans, Seas, Shorelines and Warfare. (Oceans, Seas, and Shorelines) 318 pp. 2024:9 (Routledge, UK) <727-924>
ISBN 978-0-367-44340-5 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

For as long as humanity has ventured on the seas, naval warfare has been an integral part of their activities and the focal point for many histories and ideas of heritage. This book presents a rarely explored aspect: the long-term impact of those battles on shorelines, seas, and oceans.Dramatic and altering, the physical scars of battles remain with us today in the form of cultural landscapes and archaeological sites, while the geopolitical consequences of warfare have been world-changing. The migrations of peoples across the seas, accompanied by violence, have done more to shape the demographic and cultural map of the modern world than almost anything else. Both sea-borne opportunities and threats have influenced the way of life of coastal communities. Today, technology has seen these threats extend far into the deepest ocean and reach across continents. This book shows how despite being virtually invisible to an increasing percentage of the world's population, the ocean is more significant now than it has ever been.Ranging from the world of antiquity to the present day with a global perspective, the volume is intended to appeal to those interested in history, archaeology, social sciences, and the environment.

Hazen, Helen / Sutton, Paul, An Introduction to Environment, Society and Sustainability. 448 pp. 2024:10 (Routledge, UK) <727-925>
ISBN 978-1-03-221406-1 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00
ISBN 978-1-03-226503-2 paper ¥10,530.- (税込) GB£ 35.99

This timely and innovative book delves into the complex interplay of human activities and natural limits in generating today's sustainability challenges. By contrasting the pressures of growing populations with ecological footprints associated with consumption, the volume navigates the contested terrain where human societies generate environmental impacts.Adorned with illustrative figures, examples and case studies throughout, this book presents insightful analysis of ecological, economic, technological, and social justice responses to the challenges faced by human civilization, including land degradation, climate change, pollution, and overexploitation of natural resources. Many of these issues are wicked problems, characterized by incomplete information, multiple stakeholders, and contested approaches to addressing them. In simple terms, sustainability issues are an interplay between population growth and rising consumption, which are placing impossible demands on finite resources. Potential solutions to the crisis are split between green growth approaches that emphasize technology and institutional capacity to guide economic growth in more sustainable ways, and degrowth approaches that call for a fundamental rethinking of the way we structure society and generate value. This book emerged from a student seminar where undergraduate and graduate students highlighted sustainability topics of concern, helped consider their framing, and then assisted with co-writing several of the chapters. The volume encourages readers to consider structural questions that underpin sustainability dilemmas, and begins with four theoretical frameworks for understanding sustainability issues: ideas from the natural sciences, the population/consumption debate, economic frameworks, and ethical approaches. It then uses a systems approach to apply these theoretical ideas to complex global systems such as the atmosphere, oceans, and agriculture.This volume will be of pivotal interest to students, scholars and academics in the fields of environmental studies, environment and society, human geography and environmental geography, as well as those with an interest in these areas more generally.

Miller, John MacNeill, The Ecological Plot: How Stories Gave Rise to a Science. (Under the Sign of Nature) 208 pp. 2024:9 (U. Virginia Pr., US) <727-930>
ISBN 978-0-8139-5177-5 hard ¥25,047.- (税込) US$ 110.00
ISBN 978-0-8139-5178-2 paper ¥7,399.- (税込) US$ 32.50

Unraveling the surprising history of the concept of ecologyThe Ecological Plot traces the roots of this most mainstream branch of science back to an unexpected source: narrative storytelling. Weaving together the histories of different disciplines, John MacNeill Miller shows how pioneering thinkers drew on a shared set of literary techniques to imagine how different species could work together as a single, interdependent community, redefining the way we conceptualize the natural world. Beginning with a series of revolutionary exchanges between the political economist Thomas Robert Malthus, the writer Harriet Martineau, and the naturalist Charles Darwin, The Ecological Plot identifies the foundations of modern notions of ecology, economics, and realist fiction, maps how they evolved through the works of Victorian writers such as Elizabeth Gaskell, George Eliot, and Thomas Hardy, and shows how they resurfaced in the works of Aldo Leopold and Rachel Carson a century later. Miller's book reveals why our most sophisticated efforts to explain humanity's relationship to nature have been segregated into different disciplines and makes an argument for the importance of bringing these separate ways of understanding the world back together as a crucial step toward solving the environmental, economic, and ethical problems of the present.

Nygren, Joshua, The State of Conservation: Rural America and the Conservation-Industrial Complex since 1920. (Flows, Migrations, and Exchanges) 320 pp. 2025:1 (U. North Carolina Pr., US) <727-932>
ISBN 978-1-4696-8049-1 paper ¥7,502.- (税込) US$ 32.95

Throughout the twentieth century, natural resource conservation emerged as a vital force in US politics, laying the groundwork for present-day ""sustainability."" Merging environmental, agricultural, and political history, Joshua Nygren traces the political economy and ecology of agricultural conservation through the lens of the ""conservation-industrial complex."" This evolving public-private network-which united the US Department of Agriculture, Congress, local and national organizations, and the agricultural industry-guided soil and water conservation for much of the century. Contrary to the classic tales of US environmental politics and the rise and fall of the New Deal Order, Nygren emphasizes continuity. He demonstrates how the conservation policies, programs, and partnerships of the 1930s and 1940s persisted through the age of environmentalism, and their defining traits anticipated those typically associated with late-twentieth century political culture.The conservation-industrial complex promoted a development-oriented brand of conservation that aided the rise of large-scale, capital-intensive agriculture which continues today. It reshaped the physical and political landscapes of the country, leading to impressive victories and spectacular failures by privileging some environments, degrading others, and intensifying farm depopulation. In the name of environmental protection, agricultural conservation made rural America less equal.

Richards, Michael A., Regreening the Built Environment: Nature, Green Space, and Sustainability. 2nd ed. 320 pp. 2024:9 (Routledge, UK) <727-935>
ISBN 978-1-03-266865-9 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00
ISBN 978-1-03-266859-8 paper ¥10,822.- (税込) GB£ 36.99

Now in its second volume, Regreening the Built Environment provides an overview of physical and social environmental challenges that the planet is facing and presents solutions that restore ecological processes, reclaim open space, foster social equity, and facilitate a green economy.Healing the planet requires a combination of strategies networked across multiple scales of development, including buildings, sites, communities, and regions. Case studies from a range of locations in the USA, Denmark, Vietnam, Germany, South Korea, Switzerland, France, and the UK, among others, demonstrate how existing gray infrastructure can be retrofitted with green infrastructure and low impact development techniques. From this, the author shows how a building can be designed that creates greenspace or generates energy; likewise, a roadway can be a parkway, an alley can be a wildlife corridor, and a parking surface can be a garden. This new edition also includes case studies that have successfully reconnected communities that were fragmented by unjust planning practices and irresponsible patterns of development, resilient design solutions in response to natural disasters, passive design strategies that can make interior spaces more efficient and healthier, and expanded discussions on capture carbon, renewable energy, agriculture, waste, public transit, and adaptive reuse, including innovative ideas on how to reimagine the shopping mall in the era of e-commerce.The strategies presented in this book will stimulate discussions within the design profession and will be of great interest to students and practitioners of environmental studies, architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design.

Since its inception, the field of political ecology has served as a critical hub for inclusive and transformative environmental inquiry. Doing Political Ecology offers a distinctive entry point into this ever-growing field and argues that our scholarly "foundations," today more than ever, comprise a cross-cutting latticework of research approaches and concepts. This volume brings together 28 leading scholars from a range of backgrounds and geographies, with contributions organized into 18 analytical lenses that highlight different approaches to critical environmental research and "ways of seeing" nature-society interactions. The book's contributors engage the breadth and depth of the field, recognizing a variety of roots and genealogies, and give ample voice to these rich and complementary lineages. This inclusive presentation of the field allows diverse theoretical and empirical approaches to intermingle in novel ways. Readers will emerge with a wide-ranging understanding of political ecology and will attain a diverse toolkit for evaluating human-environment interactions.Each chapter astutely grounds key methodological, theoretical, topical, and conceptual approaches that animate a range of influential, cutting-edge, and complementary approaches for "doing" political ecology.

Steinberg, Swen / Schreckenberger, Helga (eds.), Environments of Exile: Nature, Refugees, and Representations. (Schriften des Erich Maria Remarque-Archivs 36) 344 S. 2024:4 (V & R unipress, GW) <727-942>
ISBN 978-3-8471-1694-3 hard ¥13,491.- (税込) EUR 55.00

Forced Migration always takes place within specific cultural, social, political, and spatial environments. This volumes focuses on the interaction between those forced to migrate and their environments in the contexts of escape and exile from Nazi-occupied Europe. Forced emigration from Nazi Germany was a global phenomenon that took refugees primarily from Central Europe to continents and countries they often knew very little about. Not only did they have to adapt to foreign cultures but also to unfamiliar natural environments that often exposed them to severe temperature conditions, droughts, rainy seasons and diseases. While some refugees prepared for the natural conditions of their exile destination others acquired environmental knowledge at their host countries or were able to adapt prior knowledge?about cultivation methods, for example, or species, products, and sales markets?to the new environment. Consequently, specific knowledge about the environment had a large influence on the success of the migration experience. Moreover, just as the migrants shaped their new environments, they were shaped by them.

Tota, Anna Lisa, Eco-Thoughts: Conversations with a Polluted Mind. 256 pp. 2024:10 (Routledge, UK) <727-944>
ISBN 978-1-03-277747-4 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00
ISBN 978-1-03-277737-5 paper ¥10,822.- (税込) GB£ 36.99

What if the pollution of the world did not only concern the environment in which we live, but also the flow of our thoughts in every moment of everyday life? What if those thoughts, invasive like locusts, could transform and become "eco-thoughts" that make us and others feel good? Ecology concerns us from the inside, passes through us and literally shapes us: "what is inside is outside". This book offers "eco-words" and "eco-thoughts" as it sheds light on the traps that our minds construct for ourselves, that we so often fall into whether we mean to or not. It examines the erroneous paths that we sometimes meander down while we are thinking in our everyday lives, in order to help us to identify and avoid them.The thoughts we formulate are not really ours, as if our mind prefers to flow in what has already been thought, lived, felt. The author offers her reflections and insights to those who wish to direct their minds towards streams of thought that really do belong to us, that make us feel good. In order to do this, we must learn how to disable the "traps" and free ourselves of what is "contaminating" before they take hold and harm us.An original and thought-provoking examination of how are own internal lives can become toxic, and how to prevent this, that will be of particular value to students and scholars of sociology, philosophy, communication studies, memory studies, and social psychology.

Waite, Richard, Rethinking the Concept of Waste and Mass Consumption: Preserving Resources through Reuse, Repair and Recycling. (Routledge Studies in Sustainability) 256 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <727-945>
ISBN 978-1-03-282487-1 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00
ISBN 978-1-03-282486-4 paper ¥10,822.- (税込) GB£ 36.99

This book presents hard facts, drawn from extensive research, to highlight our unsustainable consumption of the Earth's resources and the limitations of the UK's current management of waste and recycling.Setting out a bleak picture of a world in which we are literally consuming our planet, the book explores the psychological, economic and capitalist drivers behind this behaviour. Controversially, the book examines the drawbacks of the current approach adopted by many local authorities on the kerbside collection of recyclable materials, as well as the UK governments' strategic approaches to household recycling, including the lack of UK-wide infrastructures for packaging re-use, and for product repair and recycling. It challenges the whole concept of waste, leading to a proposed new strategy for the management of household waste, including a simplified household collection system, the introduction of an incineration tax and the banning of all household waste exports. The author proposes reconceptualising waste as unwanted but valuable material and argues that the responsibility for facilitating re-use, repair and recycling, rests with manufacturers who must start designing with the end in mind.Given the current economic climate, and a dampening of the green agenda within UK politics, the book provides a much-needed call for critical discourse on how, and how much, we consume and sets out clear, practical solutions for change. The book will be of interest to manufacturers, retailers, consumers, local authorities, policy makers, students and professionals looking to reduce our impact on the environment.

Wright, Sarah, Becoming Weather: Weather, Embodiment and Affect. (Routledge Research in Culture, Space and Identity) 200 pp. 2024:9 (Routledge, UK) <727-946>
ISBN 978-1-03-237295-2 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

Following a relational, Indigenous-led approach grounded in 25 years of collaborative work, this book looks to weather and climate, tracing the embodied, emplaced and affective ways weather co-constitutes people, place and time/s raising critical questions of ethics, politics and becoming.Becoming weather leads the reader through a reflexive engagement with weather, seeking to shed light on pressing issues around climate change and its entanglements: from the body where contours of weather are intimately felt and known, to the ways that agencies of weather are implicated in the construction of nations, to global topologies of climate (in)justice. Reflecting on deep and ongoing collaborative work undertaken with Indigenous-led research collectives in Australia and the Philippines, the book traces contours of response-ability, learning from weathery relationships to speak back to constructions of climate that see it as aer nullius, belonging to no-one, and that deny ongoing responsibilities, becomings and belongings. The book aims to support more-than-human and relational understandings of weather that situate us all within an ethics of differential co-becoming, and that demand attention to the connections that bind and co-constitute.The book is intended for those interested in thinking differently about weather and climate, particularly those who feel an urgent dissatisfaction with mainstream responses and understandings. It will be beneficial for those who would learn from weather, from and with place, in ways led by Indigenous scholars and their allies though an engaged, reflexive, more-than-human and ethnographic account. It does not shy away from critical engagement, nor the changes desperately needed to learn and unlearn, to attend to positionalities and responsibilities, and to engage with what it means to weather on unceded Indigenous land.

Siani, Alberto L., Landscape Aesthetics: Toward an Engaged Ecology. 256 pp. 2024:7 (Columbia U. Pr., US) <727-95>
ISBN 978-0-231-21366-0 hard ¥31,878.- (税込) US$ 140.00
ISBN 978-0-231-21367-7 paper ¥7,969.- (税込) US$ 35.00

The notion of landscape typically seems innocuous, associated with leisure and contemplation. Likewise, aesthetics is often seen as apolitical, a matter of subjective tastes and preferences. This book challenges the common understanding of these categories as disengaged and demonstrates how uniting landscape studies and philosophical aesthetics opens new ways of addressing both the environmental crisis and the crisis of the humanities.Alberto L. Siani argues that the concept of landscape helps us overcome deeply ingrained oppositions, such as nature and culture, spirit and flesh, or the environment and the human. Landscape represents the intersection of these categories and therefore provides a helpful vantage point on contemporary predicaments that cannot be understood within dualistic frameworks. An engaged aesthetics shows that landscapes are not simply ways of seeing the world but ways of being in the world, offering practical guidance for inhabiting places ethically. Landscape Aesthetics sheds new light on issues spanning art and its interpretation, environmentalism, temporality, lived spaces, justice, education, and interdisciplinarity. Bringing together a wide range of sources across philosophy and other disciplines as well as personal experience, Siani reveals the key role of landscape and aesthetics in responding to the pressing crises we face today.

ISBN 978-0-231-21641-8 hard ¥29,601.- (税込) US$ 130.00 *
ISBN 978-0-231-21642-5 paper ¥7,286.- (税込) US$ 32.00 *

Ecological crises threaten all forms of life on earth. Democracy too is endangered, as popular discontent, elite malfeasance, and unresponsive institutions imperil its survival. Present political concepts have proven inadequate to meeting these challenges, and their inadequacies are themselves symptoms of the failures of prevailing political, cultural, and ecological stories and practices.This book offers a new vision of ecological and participatory democratic life for a time of crisis. Identifying myth and ritual as key resources for contemporary politics, Earthborn Democracy excavates practices and narratives that illustrate the interdependence necessary to inspire ecological renewal. It tells stories of multispecies agency and egalitarian political organization across history, from ancient Mesopotamia and the precolonial Americas to contemporary social movements, emphasizing Indigenous traditions and resistance. Resonating across these practices and stories past and present is a belief that we are all-human as well as nonhuman-earthborn, and this can serve as the basis for reimagining democracy. Allying visionary political theory with environmental activism, Earthborn Democracy provides a foundation and a guide for collective action in pursuit of earthly flourishing.

Hakes, Jay, The Presidents and the Planet: Climate Change Science and Politics from Eisenhower to Bush. 376 pp. 2024:8 (Louisiana State U. Pr., US) <727-683>
ISBN 978-0-8071-8190-4 hard ¥9,095.- (税込) US$ 39.95

The Presidents and the Planet recounts the story of the world's greatest environmental dilemma through the eyes of early climate change pioneers. It begins in the 1950s, when American scientists first warned about the risks of pollution altering the natural climate in dramatic ways, the national media began covering the matter, and experts first offered testimony to congressional committees on the topic. The story ends in the early 1990s, by which time global efforts to confront the challenge were advancing, while political turmoil had begun to undermine U.S. leadership's ability to address current and future environmental threats.While some early proponents endorsing climate action are well known, many of the major players have gone largely unrecognized. The oceanographer Roger Revelle exerted influence on eight White Houses during his life and even one after his death, when his former student Al Gore assumed the office of vice president. William Nordhaus had already written seminal studies on climate change when President Jimmy Carter appointed him to the Council of Economic Advisors. Four decades later, the Yale professor won the Nobel Prize in economics for his work on the subject. John Chafee, a Republican from Rhode Island, chaired the Senate's first committee on the problem and provided concrete solutions to face the dangers of a warming planet during the Reagan administration. The drama reached a full pitch during the George H. W. Bush years, as vocal advocates for climate action and staunch foes of government regulation wrestled over the direction of U.S. energy and environmental policy.To better trace the evolving climate debate in America, author Jay Hakes inspected the archives and writings of prominent scientists and the pivotal reports of the National Academy of Sciences, and traveled to presidential libraries to discover how commanders-in-chief and their science, economic, and political advisors addressed the issue. The Presidents and the Planet affords fresh perspectives that will alter the public's understanding of when officials first grasped the dire consequences of climate change.

Schoensteiner, Judith / Krajewski, Markus (eds.), Human Rights and Environmental Sustainability in State-Owned Enterprises. (Human Rights and International Law) 234 pp. 2024:9 (Routledge, UK) <727-372>
ISBN 978-1-03-227115-6 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

This book presents case studies on the human rights performance of state-owned enterprises from four Latin American and three European countries, as well as foreign investments by Chinese state-owned enterprises in these continents. State-owned enterprises are considered among some of the worst perpetrators of contamination and corporate human rights violations around the globe, both domestically and abroad. This volume examines whether companies implement the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and how their state owners regulate or incentivize their human rights compliance. Studies cover different sectors ranging from finance to extractives and air transport in Brazil, Chile, China, Ecuador, Finland, France, Germany, and Mexico, and allow contrasts between companies from countries with different degrees of human rights regulation, including due diligence and supply chain laws. The work shows that states are rather hesitant to implement the UN Guiding Principles "leading by example". The book will be essential reading for academics, researchers and policy-makers working in the areas of international human rights law, comparative administrative law and corporate social responsibility.

Stone, Moren T. / Stone, Lesego S. / Nyaupane, Gyan (eds.), Protected Areas, Sustainable Tourism and Community Livelihood Linkages. 211 pp. 2024:10 (Routledge, UK) <727-397>
ISBN 978-1-03-283175-6 hard ¥39,501.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

The book uses a multi-disciplinary approach to address lessons learned and challenges encountered over the years in different ecological, economic, political and cultural contexts.Protected areas were originally established as recreational spaces and to protect some components of nature; however, today they are also expected to provide an increasing range of benefits to an array of people. Protected areas no longer simply "protect" but they also provide ecosystem services and facilitate poverty reduction via local development, ecotourism, and sustainable resource use. Integrating tourism and conservation with existing local historical, socio-economic, and institutional landscapes is associated with the promotion of local community participation in resource management. The book adopts an interdisciplinary approach to understand social-ecological systems that explain the relationship between protected areas, tourism, and community livelihoods linkages. The book provides a platform for dialogue to develop a better understanding of the complex relationships between protected areas, tourism, and community livelihoods linkages. Due to the role tourism plays in poverty alleviation, conservation, empowerment and addressing other environmental and social challenges, the book also connects tourism with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.This book will be of great interest to students, scholars and policymakers of tourism, conservation, natural resource management, sustainable development as well as professionals and policymakers involved in conservation policy. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of Journal of Sustainable Tourism.

Spence, David B., Climate of Contempt: How to Rescue the U.S. Energy Transition from Voter Partisanship. (Center on Global Energy Policy Series) 400 pp. 2024:8 (Columbia U. Pr., US) <727-225>
ISBN 978-0-231-21709-5 hard ¥26,185.- (税込) US$ 115.00 *
ISBN 978-0-231-21708-8 paper ¥6,375.- (税込) US$ 28.00 *

Why is the United States struggling to enact policies to reduce carbon emissions? Conventional wisdom holds that the wealthy and powerful are to blame, as the oligarchs and corporations that wield disproportionate sway over politicians prioritize their short-term financial interests over the climate's long-term health. David B. Spence argues that this top-down narrative misses a more important culprit-with critical consequences for the energy transition.Climate of Contempt offers a voter-centric, bottom-up explanation of national climate and energy politics, one that pinpoints bitter partisanship as the key impediment to transitioning to a net zero carbon future. Members of Congress respond to voters whose animosity toward the opposing party makes compromise politically risky. The most powerful driver of polarization, in turn, is the mixture of ideology and social media that constitutes today's information environment, which amplifies anger, spreads half truths and falsehoods, and sows division, distorting voters' understandings of the energy transition and their fellow citizens.Spence explores the effects of polarization, partisanship, and propaganda on energy policy and considers how to build a broader climate coalition. He contends that cooperation on this crucial issue is still possible, but it will require sustained person-to-person engagement across ideological and partisan boundaries to foster a more productive dialogue. Providing a timely and incisive understanding of the politics of the energy transition, Climate of Contempt suggests new paths forward and offers hope for a net-zero future.

Giraldo, Omar Felipe / Toro, Ingrid Fernanda, Environmental Affectivity: Aesthetics of Inhabiting. 176 pp. 2024:4 (Bloomsbury Academic, UK) <726-76>
ISBN 978-1-350-34510-2 hard ¥24,871.- (税込) GB£ 85.00

Following Spinoza's lead and Latin American environmental thought, this book imagines an embodied environmental ethics based on the relations between sentient beings and sustained by affections, sensibility, the senses, and contact. Engaging embodied, cognitive, phenomenological, aesthetic and psychoanalytic aspects of affectivity, Omar Felipe Giraldo and Ingrid Fernanda Toro help us understand how places inhabit us, and therefore, how places transformed lovingly have the immense capacity to modify the body, to redirect desire, to clarify our sensibility - creating an affectivity in direction opposition to the regime imposed by this global ecocidal capitalism. For the authors, the environmental crisis is more than a technological or economic problem. They see it as a threat to survival inscribed in the deepest foundations of our body, in the intimacy of our skin, in the intensity and tone of our affections, in our desires, in our perceptions and in our sensory-motor capacities. Hence, the immense need to dismantle this system of power embedded in the intimacy of our body and to cultivate a perceptual transformation guided by an empathic knowledge that leads to a different understanding of our belonging in that which exceeds us. This book is a vital manifesto on the political role of affects, an invitation to awaken the sensitive perception anesthetized by the ecologies of cruelty, and an urgent call to understand differently our place in the cosmos in the midst of this war that our civilization has declared on life.

Irwin, Brian, The Environmental Uncanny: A Phenomenology of the Loss of the World. 272 pp. 2024:7 (Bloomsbury Academic, UK) <726-78>
ISBN 978-1-350-41737-3 hard ¥24,871.- (税込) GB£ 85.00 *

The Environmental Uncanny argues that the increasing destitution of our world is the result of a certain forgetfulness: we have forgotten that the basis of our knowledge is not calculative reason, but our participation in the natural world. The modern built environment is exemplary of this forgetfulness, and induces an uncanniness that can help us to understand the nature of our environmental crisis. This book offers a unique interdisciplinary perspective on the global environmental crisis. Ranging from traditional phenomenology, including substantial discussion of both Merleau-Ponty and Heidegger, to philosophy of biology, to architectural and urban design theory, to landscape photography, it makes illuminating connections to paint a multifaceted picture. Tracing the root causes of dwindling biodiversity, deforestation and suburban sprawl, we can find how might we mark the path back toward a mode of rich inhabitation in a contemporary age. In charting out how it is that we are losing our world, Irwin offers a thought as to how we might regain it.

One small town, two "thousand-year floods" in the span of two years: how does a community become resilient in the face of the ever-increasing risks of climate change? Small towns across America and around the world face mounting challenges with flood risk, a result of not only climate change but also poorly adapted landscapes, sprawl, overdevelopment and poor planning. After the Floods is about Ellicott City, a small town in central Maryland that experienced two devastating flash floods just 22 months apart. Despite the town's many advantages-wealth, access to expertise, a mobilized community, and a stout identity steeped in 250 years of history-Ellicott City found itself mired in a deeply divisive argument over what to do in the aftermath. As a resident, Ken Conca bore firsthand witness to the conflict that took root when the flood waters receded. While this book is about one residential suburb, the dilemmas that it faces over how to adapt to climate change are coming soon to a small town near you. On one level a story about re-engineering a landscape, After the Floods ultimately grapples with uncertainty over local history, justice, democracy, and identity. What can we know about future risks to our communities? What is the meaning of place and history when preservation goals come into conflict with flood protection? What should we protect? Who gets to speak for the community? In Ellicott City's search for answers, we can find important lessons for other small communities that must begin preparing for future climate risks.

Del Favero, Dennis / Thurow, Susanne et al. (eds.), Climate Disaster Preparedness: Reimagining Extreme Events through Art and Technology. (Arts, Research, Innovation and Society) 219 pp. 2024:5 (Springer, GW) <726-819>
ISBN 978-3-031-56113-9 hard ¥12,261.- (税込) EUR 49.99
ISBN 978-3-031-56116-0 paper ¥9,808.- (税込) EUR 39.99

As a result of global warming, extreme events, such as firestorms and flash floods, pose increasingly unpredictable and uncertain existential threats, taking lives, destroying communities, and wreaking havoc on habitats. Current aesthetic, technological and scientific frameworks struggle to imagine, visualise and rehearse human interactions with these events, hampering the development of proactive foresight, readiness and response.This open access book demonstrates how the latest advances in creative arts, intelligent systems and climate science can be integrated and leveraged to transform the visualisation of extreme event scenarios. It reframes current practice from passive perception of pre-scripted illustrations to active immersion in evolving life-like interactive scenarios that are geo-located. Drawing on the multidisciplinary expertise of leaders in the creative arts, climate sciences, environmental engineering, and intelligent systems, this book examines the waysin which climate disaster preparedness can be reformulated through practices that address dynamic and unforeseen interactions between climate and human life worlds. Grouped into four sections (picturing, narrating, rehearsing, and communicating), this book maps this approach by exploring the emerging strengths and current limitations of each discipline in addressing the challenge of envisioning the unpredictable interaction of extreme events with human populations and environments. This book provides a timely intervention into the global discourse on how art, culture and technology can address climate disaster resilience. It appeals to readers from multiple fields, offering academic, industry and community audiences novel insights into a profound gap in the current knowledge, policy and action landscape.

This book explores how China's media narrate climate policy and climate change. With the rapid growth of economy and carbon emissions, China has been seen as having a key role in addressingclimate change and receives substantial attention from the media. In theChinese coverage, climate change issues can be interpreted as various concernsand ideas involving the dimensions of the economy, energy and emissions, publicinvolvement, science and ecology, and responsibility. In this sense, a discourseapproach can be used to understand how the newspapers construct the climatechange discourse and discourse networks in the coverage. This study selectsthree different newspapers in China, namely People'sDaily, China Daily and Southern Weekend. This book will interest scholars of Chinese politics, environmentalists, and media studies scholars.

Ecocriticism and Turkey is the first in-depth study to explore Turkish literary and cultural engagements with the environment. Ergin examines a wide range of ecocritical issues across four thematically organized chapters: "Sea," "Climate," "Routes," and "Animals." Each chapter addresses various dimensions of anthropogenic ecological change and highlights the role of literature in inspiring hope and action. The book takes readers on various journeys from the coasts of the Aegean Sea to the mountains of Eastern Anatolia. Ergin converses with both twentieth-century writers to shed new light on familiar texts and contemporary writers to capture emerging perspectives, including Rum, Laz, Kurdish, and Armenian voices in her discussion. The study is further enriched by an interdisciplinary inquiry that brings literature into dialogue with climate science, political history, underwater photography, folk music, and bio-art.

Benjaminsen, Tor A., Climate Security and Climate Justice: Recognizing Context in the Sahel. 176 pp. 2024:9 (E. Elgar, UK) <726-977>
ISBN 978-1-03-532517-7 hard ¥23,408.- (税込) GB£ 80.00

Bringing climate security and climate justice into dialogue, this topical book uses the Sahel as a case study to discuss the contrast between these two approaches and how they tend to lack an engagement with social, historical and political contexts.Tor A. Benjaminsen introduces the international debate on climate security, with a particular focus on Mali as a 'hub' country of the current security crisis in the Western Sahel. Providing a critique of simplistic narratives, he develops the idea of 'recognition' as a neglected aspect of justice in the literature on the Sahel, as well as in policy and media debates. Chapters cover topics including colonization, desertification, and forest governance; pastoralism, moral economies of resistance, and Jihadism; materialist political ecology; and green transformation, afforestation, land dispossession and context. The book ultimately demonstrates how issues of climate justice across Africa are embedded in the politics of social transformation towards low-carbon societies in rich countries.This book is an invaluable resource for students and scholars of climate justice and climate change, peace and security studies, environmental and development studies, geography and political ecology. Its practical implications are vital to environmental policymakers, NGO employees and climate activists worldwide.

Kuiper, Gerda / Kioko, Eric / Bollig, Michael (eds.), Agricultural Intensification, Environmental Conservation, Conflict and Co-Existence at Lake Naivasha, Kenya. (Africa-Europe Group for Interdisciplinary Studies 34) 360 pp. 2024:7 (Brill, NE) <726-300>
ISBN 978-90-04-69541-2 paper ¥16,435.- (税込) EUR 67.00

This interdisciplinary volume provides a comprehensive and rich analysis of the century-long socio-ecological transformation of Lake Naivasha, Kenya. Major globalised processes of agricultural intensification, biodiversity conservation efforts, and natural-resource extraction have simultaneously manifested themselves in this one location. These processes have roots in the colonial period and have intensified in the past decades, after the establishment of the cut-flower industry and the geothermal-energy industry. The chapters in this volume exemplify the multiple, intertwined socio-environmental crises that consequently have played out in Naivasha in the past and the present, and that continue to shape its future.

Castan Broto, Vanesa (ed.), Community Energy and Sustainable Energy Transitions: Experiences from Ethiopia, Malawi and Mozambique. 285 pp. 2024:5 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <726-317>
ISBN 978-3-031-57937-0 hard ¥12,261.- (税込) EUR 49.99

This open access book engages with the difficulties of delivering community energy in practice, building on practical experiences in Ethiopia, Malawi, and Mozambique. In these countries, where many people lack access to electricity, community energy is an alternative to advance universal energy access. This book argues that, besides providing access, community energy is essential for achieving justice and resilience in sustainable energy transitions. Community energy combines off-grid infrastructures with innovative forms of governance to incorporate the perspectives of beneficiaries in the generation and distribution of electricity. Community energy has multiple benefits for communities, such as facilitating the adoption of renewable technologies, providing energy access where it is lacking, and building resilience. They also offer societal benefits beyond beneficiary communities, such as providing additional capacity to existing grids, delivering off-grid services where the grid is absent, and bridging on-grid and off-grid systems. Despite its promises, however, the adoption of community energy has been slow. This book presents a feminist-informed perspective on community energy to advance energy justice that puts disadvantaged communities at the centre of sustainable energy transitions. It also explores the room for manoeuvre within existing regulatory systems, supply chains, and delivery systems to facilitate its development. By engaging with existing experiences in community energy, the book demonstrates the potential of communities to gain control over their energy needs and resources and argues for the need to develop a wide range of transdisciplinary skills among policymakers, technicians and communities to deliver a just energy transition.

李秀澈、赤尾健一他編 アジアにおけるエネルギー移行と気候変動の諸問題
Lee, Soocheol / Zhang, Shiqiu / Hong, Jong Ho / Nabangchang-Srisawalak, Orapan / Akao, Ken-Ichi et al. (eds.), Energy Transitions and Climate Change Issues in Asia. 270 pp. 2024:7 (Springer, GW) <726-320>
ISBN 978-981-9717-72-9 hard ¥39,244.- (税込) EUR 159.99

The rapid pace of economic development and urbanization in Asia have led to several major problems such as greenhouse gas emissions, mass consumption, and depletion of natural resources. These problems pose a major threat to a sustainable future for Asia and are hindering many Asian countries' goal of becoming carbon-neutral by the middle of this century. Solving these problems requires a comprehensive understanding of the nature of energy consumption, exploitation of natural resources, and deterioration of the environment.To accelerate the green energy transition and promote efficient resource use in Asia, a range of policy options and joint efforts among Asian countries will be required, including carbon pricing, resource tax reform, the expansion of transition finance, support for the development of low-carbon, and resource-efficient social infrastructure. However, Asia is home to many countries, each in a different stage of economic development and with its own culture and customs. Practical implementation of these policies will require bringing together researchers, policymakers, and citizens to share their knowledge and engage in discussions to generate policy ideas that are appropriate for each country. The purpose of this book is to share theoretical and empirical knowledge and convey policy implications that can be expected to accelerate energy transition and resource use effectiveness toward a sustainable future in Asia.
