Humanity and Nature in the Japanese Archipelago

⇒ Look inside (PDF)

Humanity and Nature in the Japanese Archipelago

In 2015 the CRP(Center for Research Promotion) published Humanity and Nature in the Japanese Archipelago, an English language illustrated volume based on research conducted at RIHN between 2000-2009 and originally published in Japanese in The Encyclopedia of Global Environmental Studies (2010). Working with several authors of the original texts as well as a number of current RIHN researchers and a skilled team of scientific illustrators and artists, the original entries were brought into a single narrative describing key themes in the study of long-term human-environmental change in Japan. The volume includes a core section on the Jomon period in Japan, a fascinating segment of human and environmental history about which there is precious little written in English for a non-specialist audience.
