Comment on Ellen Lindh’s reflection, Alf Hornborg, March 3, 2014
You point out the two things I too see as Hornborg’s greatest contribution to the debate about what global environmental history can be, namely that a world-system approach can deepen our understanding of environmental change over time, and that the nation state as the unit of analysis does not sufficiently explain environmental change. With this said, I find your point of “micro history” being lost, or forgotten, in the effort to find the “macro history” interesting and important.
