European Landscapes and Lifestyles: The Mediterranean and Beyond

Edited by Zoran Roca, Theo Spek, Theano Terkenli, Tobias Plieninger and Franz Hochtl
Edicoes Universitarias Lusofonas, Lisboa, Portugal, ISBN: 978-972-8881-35-1, 475 pp.

Edited by Zoran Roca, Theo Spek, Theano Terkenli, Tobias Plieninger and Franz Hochtl, this book brings forwards new building blocks for the construction of an open-ended "European story" of the changing relations between nature and society, and pays tribute to the diversity of past and present landscapes and lifestyles across the entire continent from revising the forgotten Aegean islets and the antiquity of Crete and the Peloponnesus, to detecting ephemeral landscapes in the periurban fringes in Sweden; from assessing environmental and socioeconomic effects on transition in Latvian agriculture and nature-protection policies in Poland, to reinterpreting the vanishing Spanish dehesas and literary accounts of landscapes and lifestyles in rural Portugal; from questioning identity aspirations in French Aquitaine and Slovenian Istria, to foreseeing the attractiveness of depopulated regions for retired Germans.
