Beautiful Floods

Environmental Knowledge and Agrarian Change in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam

Reihe: ZEF Development Studies, Band 19, 2012, broschiert, 256 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-643-90195-8

Floods are generally perceived as natural hazards. This book, in contrast, portrays the `beautiful floods' of the Mekong Delta, which annually constitute a substantial resource for people's rural livelihoods. With a focus on floods, the author employs a `lifeworlds' analysis to investigate dynamics of environmental and livelihood knowledge among farming and fishing communities and demonstrates that rapid agrarian change has both positive and negative impacts.

Judith Ehlert is a sociologist and senior researcher at the Center for Development Research, University of Bonn (Germany). She is a specialist in Southeast Asia and is currently working on the political ecology of food and agriculture.
