The Mountain : A Political History from the Enlightenment to the Present

Publication Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2015
Description 352 p.
Abstract The Mountain offers an outstanding social and political science approach to mountains. Extending from the Enlightenment to the present day, the authors demonstrate an exceptional familiarity with the literature and recount how mountains, by embracing environment, development, and people, became an integral part of world politics following the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and the United Nations designation of 2002 as the International Year of Mountains. This book is a tour de force—indispensable for anyone interested in mountains or anyone concerned about the future of our world. — Jack D. Ives, United Nations University
