Consisting of 12 chapters, the book presents the rise and development of environmentalism, environmental history as a discipline, and the history of environmental movements in the Central and South Eastern European region from an international point of view.
The chapters-written by scholars from Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Slovakia, Romania, Serbia, Greece and Turkey-cover a wide range of topics including the creation of protected areas, increasing environmental consciousness, the evolution of humanity's relationship toward the environment, and perceptions of environmentalism by different disciplines.

This international approach highlights the region's complex development from the end of the eighteenth century through the twentieth century, with its unique blend of traditions. Three historically different traditions-the Habsburg, Ottoman and Venetian-converge in Central and South Eastern Europe, and this book emphasizes the subtleties of these sometimes intertwined traditions.

The focus of the book varies according to both the different geographical environments characteristic of the region and the protagonists who actively participated in changing relationships toward the environment. However, what does not vary and is common to all the chapters is the historical approach, since the process has continuity, which the book accentuates.

In geographical terms, the region that is the focus of the book, Central and South Eastern Europe, is the contact zone of the Alps, Danube, Adriatic and partially the North Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Throughout history, it was also the contact zone of the Habsburg, Ottoman and Venetian traditions. Those realities have resulted in a unique blending and intertwining of traditions and, therefore, relationships with and perceptions of the environment.
