Nature and Culture
A collection of academic papers and case studies, this book examines the environmental constraints faced by humankind in the pursuit of development, and explores the relationship between culture and nature and how they evolve together. Six authors from different parts of Asia analyze various cases including an agricultural production model in Dazhai, China and its environmental consequences; the creative community of Khiriwong in Southern Thailand; a comparative study of civil society engagements from Indonesia and the Philippines; and the global aid that surged into Aceh after the Indian Ocean tsunami in contrast to the aid that flowed to Japan after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. Contributors include Bao Maohong, Cristina P. Lim, Theresita V. Atienza, Rosalie Arcala Hall, Valerie Pagasa P. Buenaventura, and David M. Potter. Edited by Rosalina Palanca-Tan.
