“This extraordinary book is a prime example of the multidisciplinary work that makes a metadiscipline like border studies grow. It zooms innovatively on the intersection of social and natural ecologies in transboundary spaces, drawing from many disciplines and cases to show us how to transit from theory to action in reintegrating humans and nature under territorial confl ict, galloping resource extraction and severe environmental stress.”
—Tony Payan, Fellow and Director, Mexico Center, James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy, Rice University, USA

“The authors offer a comprehensive panorama of environmental issues in border areas and the zones of conflict. They apply a robust multiscale and multidisciplinary approach to integrating social ecology and critical border studies and opening a new view on complex relations between borders and nature. The book provides scholars and practitioners involved in peace processes with valuable information on the use of environment protection in reconciliation and peace keeping.”
—Vladimir Kolosov, Professor, Institute of Geography, Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia
