About

2015 titles include the below:

A Fairytale in Question: Historical Interactions between Humans and Wolves, edited by Patrick Masius and Jana Sprenger, is a collection of essays that aims to grasp the maincurrents of thought about interactions with the wolf in modern history. International in range and chronological in organisation, this volume roots study of human–wolf relationships coherently within the disciplines of environmental and animal history for the first time.

Fluid Frontiers: New Currents in Marine Environmental History, edited by John Gillis and Franziska Torma, studies the history, meaning and materiality of the marine environment. Here the history of oceanic sciences meets that of literary and artistic imagination, offering vivid insights into the meanings as well as the materiality of waves and swamps, coasts and coral reefs.

Returning to our publishing roots with a major work in the field of environmental philosophy, we are proud to announce Anne Frank’s Tree. Nature’s Confrontation with Technology, Domination, and the Holocaust. In this important and original interdisciplinary work, Eric Katz explores technology’s role in dominating both nature and humanity in a meditation on the opposing themes of domination and autonomy as they relate to the uses of technology in environmental policy and in the genocidal policies of the Holocaust.

Our series of environmental history readers, ‘Themes in Environmental History’, continues with Trees, which addresses the roots of environmental history in forest history, offering a substantial section on forestry practice and ideology and the power-relations that have been and continue to be played out in global forests. While histories of forests and forestry have at times, by focus on the woods, obscured our vision of the trees, this volume contains several essays about the nurturing of specific trees, from street trees to penal planting.
