The editors are relational thinkers, well aware that the environment, so-called, is not the same as ’nature’; rather, their title conveys an academic field subjecting itself to a reflexive process of decolonisation.’ – Ariel Salleh, Nelson Mandela University, South Africa Oct 2022 648 pp Hardback 978 1 83910 066 6 £240.00 / $345.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar Handbooks in Energy, the Environment and Climate Change
