Landscape, Process and Power: Re-evaluating Traditional Environmental Knowledge
Serena Heckler (ed.)
Berghahn Books, 2012 | ISBN: 978-0-85745-613-7 (paperback)

Recently made available in paperback edition, this book presents an overview of the study of traditional environmental knowledge (TEK) and the directions in which it has evolved in recent years. The contributors argue that to accurately and appropriately describe TEK, the historical and political forces that have shaped it and people’s day to day engagement with the landscape must be taken into account. TEK thus emerges not as an easily translatable tool for development experts, but as a rich and complex element of contemporary lives that should be defined and managed by indigenous and local peoples themselves.
