The book that launched environmental history now updated.
Winner of the Francis Parkman Prize
In this landmark work of environmental history, William Cronon offers an original and profound explanation of the
effects European colonists' sense of property and their pursuit of capitalism had upon the ecosystems of New England.
Reissued here with an updated afterword by the author and a new preface by the distinguished colonialist John Demos,
Changes in the Land, provides a brilliant inter-disciplinary interpretation of how land and people influence one
another. With its chilling closing line, "The people of plenty were a people of waste," Cronon's enduring and
thought-provoking book is ethno-ecological history at its best.
