Monash studies in Australian society.

Summary

How have individuals and communities responded to change, and how have they interacted with the physical environments around them? This book assembles contributions that examine the historic and contemporary relations of people and the environment in an area - specifically, Gippsland in Victoria, Australia. The book is built upon a many-layered history of environmental modifications and on the cusp of rapid economic and social change. It takes account of Aboriginal and 'white' relations, 'old' and 'new' forms of pastoralism and agriculture, water and coastal management and fishing, mining and industrialization, forestry, heritage management, and increasing political tensions in relation to the environment.
