Review of ‘The Ecology of Pastoralism’ edited by P. Nick Kardulias

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review

Abstract

This book presents a rich collection of case studies exploring the ecology of pastoralism. Its aim is to examine the ways in which pastoralism operates as a highly flexible system, through the adaptations of both the domestic animals and the socioeconomic strategies of human groups to different environments and contexts. The volume achieves this through taking a comparative approach, drawing together a range of case studies from Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas, and importantly through including both present and past perspectives on pastoral societies.
