Hardcover ($55.00) Buy
Australia's Northern Territory is twice the size of Texas with a population less than one-tenth that of Houston. How could so vast a place be a setting for environmental abuse? American anthropologist Richard Symanski shows how the Outback's ecology has been drastically altered as Europeans, Aborigines, wild species, and introduced species make their impact on the land and on each other.
"Whether your interest is in the relationship of working people to the law, American class structures, history, the role of law, public policy, or why not to believe economists, McCay's book is a well-argued and provocative work." —Anthropology of Work Review
