Emanuel Kreike (Professor of History; Acting Director, African Studies, Princeton University)

Emmanuel Kreike teaches African, environmental, and global history at Princeton University. His research focuses on the intersection between war, environment, and society using a comparative and global approach. His recently published book, Scorched Earth: Environmental Warfare as a Crime against Humanity and Nature (Princeton University Press, 2021), highlights the impact of 16th-20th century conventional war on society and environment. Scorched Earth is the first volume in what he hopes will become the Environcide Trilogy. The second book project on modern (counter) insurgency wars is in an advanced stage and he has laid the groundwork for a third book project on the impact of the violence of the slave trade on the Atlantic World.
