Donaldsonville. Donaldsonville is a jewel in the crown of Louisiana history. Around 1750, from a small trading post at the fork of the Mississippi River and Bayou Lafourche, the Tchitimacha Indians witnessed the arrival of the French, English, German, Spanish, Jewish, Italian, and Irish settlers. Sugar cane plantations and African slaves came shortly after their arrival. The city has played host to Jean Lafitte, Fort Butler, Rebel forces, Union troops, oyster boats, the first black mayor in America, and scores of stories and characters that are all family, as well as serving as the capital of Louisiana. Donaldsonville was the commercial hub for trade up and down the Mississippi River and into the Gulf of Mexico until Bayou Lafourche was damned in 1903. Today, Donaldsonville is on the threshold of becoming Louisiana's version of Williamsburg, Virginia.

Environmental Anthropology. This volume presents new theoretical approaches, methodologies, subject pools, and topics in the field of environmental anthropology. Environmental anthropologists are increasingly focusing on self-reflection - not just on themselves and their impacts on environmental research, but also on the reflexive qualities of their subjects, and the extent to which these individuals are questioning their own environmental behavior. Here, contributors confront the very notion of "natural resources" in granting non-human species their subjectivity and arguing for deeper understanding of "nature," and "wilderness" beyond the label of "ecosystem services." By engaging in interdisciplinary efforts, these anthropologists present new ways for their colleagues, subjects, peers and communities to understand the causes of, and alternatives to environmental destruction. This book demonstrates that environmental anthropology has moved beyond the construction of rural, small group theory, entering into a mode of solution-based methodologies and interdisciplinary theories for understanding human-environmental interactions. It is focused on post-rural existence, health and environmental risk assessment, on the realm of alternative actions, and emphasizes the necessary steps towards preventing environmental crisis.
