The Great Convergence offers new perspectives on the BRICS nations through a collaborative effort of environmental historians from Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. This edited volume attempts to go beyond the economic and geopolitical paradigms to trace the dynamics of environmental change within the BRICS countries from a historical perspective. Focusing on three basic themes—the state, civil society, and historiography—this volume investigates the relations between nature and society over time in each of the BRICS nations and how can they together face the current environmental challenges.
