Editorial review:

In his introduction to 38 contributed chapters, Hilson (environmental policy and management, Imperial College of Science, Technology, and Medicine, UK) notes the diverse connotations of "small-scale/artisanal mining." He emphasizes the need for respect between environmentalists concerned about the industry's effects and those engaged in it as one of their limited options for a livelihood. International experts in the field treat the complexity of how such mining fits into developing economies by discussing regulatory, labor, sustainability, social, and health issues and presenting case studies of practices in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
