About the Author

Reviews
"Overall, the book was a fascinating read and source of discussion in our classroom. An approach to constructing an ethnography of a landscape spoke to the issues of environmental change in the Anthropocene so central to our current crisis."-- "African Journal of Range and Forage Science"
"The book is enjoyable to read and the argument is clear and easy to follow, with little jargon or theory to get in the way of the non-anthropologist reader."-- "Journal of Environmental Anthropology and the Interpretation of Landscapes"
"The work of Colin Hoag is an outstanding work of political ecology and environmental humanities. All the chapters demonstrate his capacity to consider both the broader context (analyzing the history of Lesotho and using socio-economic data, particularly those linked to pastoralism) and the local perspective (through ethnographic approach and in-depth analysis of discourses and landscape)."
-- "Water Alternatives Book Review"
