First published in 1999, this volume is concerned with how issues of identity and locality – globalization and ethics, valuing the environment, environmental justice and the use of traditional and new legal forms – cross the disciplines of law, ethics, geography, political science and social theory. Necessarily diverse, the collection both explores and confronts the limitations of law that prevent recognition of the relationship between humans and nature.
