models of human development

Hi there,

I hope that somebody would be able to provide me with some background
information for the research that I am currently doing for a PhD on
the relationship between human development and environmental change.

Most of the references I have dealt with thus far fall within the
parameters of ecological anthropology and environmental history. Here
I have focused on people like Donald Worster, Marvin Harris,
Wilkenson, Rappaport, and so on. In some of the critiques of Harris I
came accross references to "other 'demo-techno-enviro-whatever'
models of human development - but not one of the authors went beyond
this general statement.

Do you have any leads? Would be much appreciated.
