Several starting points are suggested, and some authors support the concept of a time-transgressive Anthropocene. Chapters in this book are organized into six sections, but many of them transcend easy categorization and could easily have fit into two or even three different sections. Geographers embrace the concept of the Anthropocene while defining it and studying it in a variety of ways that clearly show the breadth and diversity of the discipline.
This book will be of great value to scholars, researchers and students interested in geography, environmental humanities, environmental studies and anthropology. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of the journal, Annals of the American Association of Geographers.
