Caught in an Atlantic storm the ‘Annie L.’ is sinking. With its motley crew the trawler is an accident waiting to happen. They are hundreds of miles from their homeport on the picturesque Achill Island on the west coast of Ireland and there may be no chance of rescue. The crew; the Skipper, his sensible nephew Pat and deck hand Coleman seem to have a death wish. Life had failed each of them in its own way. The exception is the beautiful red haired marine biologist from Finland who is with them for this one trip. She wants to live. With an impending storm, they are the only boat to leave the remote Achill Island on the west coast of Ireland. Their position in the north Atlantic is near the porcupine shelf, about one hundred miles from their home port. The engine has blown and the trawler is holed and taking in water. This is the account of the three-man crew and female passenger of the trawler ‘Annie L.’ in a raging Atlantic rainstorm. Their story needs to be told. Author James McCarthy brings this voyage to life with a cast of unforgettable characters in a rousing sea-faring tale of courage and determination, love and loss, fear and faith.

The Routledge Handbook of Political Ecology presents a comprehensive and authoritative examination of the rapidly growing field of political ecology. Located at the intersection of geography, anthropology, sociology, and environmental history, political ecology is one of the most vibrant and conceptually diverse fields of inquiry into nature-society relations within the social sciences. The Handbook serves as an essential guide to this rapidly evolving intellectual landscape. With contributions from over 50 leading authors, the Handbook presents a systematic overview of political ecology’s origins, practices and core concerns, and aims to advance both ongoing and emerging debates. While there are numerous edited volumes, textbooks, and monographs under the heading ‘political ecology,’ these have tended to be relatively narrow in scope, either as collections of empirically based (mostly case study) research on a given theme, or broad overviews of the field aimed at undergraduate audiences. The Routledge Handbook of Political Ecology is the first systematic, comprehensive overview of the field. With authors from North and South America, Europe, Australia and elsewhere, the Handbook of Political Ecology provides a state of the art examination of political ecology; addresses ongoing and emerging debates in this rapidly evolving field; and charts new agendas for research, policy, and activism.

The Routledge Handbook of Political Ecology introduces political ecology as an interdisciplinary academic field. By presenting a ‘state of the art’ examination of the field, it will serve as an invaluable resource for students and scholars. It not only critically reviews the key debates in the field, but develops them. The Handbook will serve as an excellent resource for graduate and advanced undergraduate teaching, and is a key reference text for geographers, anthropologists, sociologists, environmental historians, and others working in and around political ecology.
