Hunting for Empire

T003 - UBC Gillespie 9.indd 1 9/1/07 12:04:57 AM

The Nature | History | Society series is devoted to the publication of

high-quality scholarship in environmental history and allied fields. Its

broad compass is signalled by its title: nature because it takes the natural

world seriously; history because it aims to foster work that has temporal

depth; and society because its essential concern is with the interface

between nature and society, broadly conceived. The series is avowedly interdisciplinary and is open to the work of anthropologists, ecologists, historians, geographers, literary scholars, political scientists, sociologists, and others whose interests resonate with its mandate. It offers a timely outlet for lively, innovative, and well-written work on the interaction of people and nature through time in North America.
