'A book like this one goes a long way to making environmental history something that any and everyone can easily grasp.' -- Reviews in History 'A must read for anyone interested in exploring the historical roots of a planetwide ecological crisis. Essential.' -- Choice 'Meticulously researched, it is sure to provide even the hardened environmental historian with some new case study, some unexpected interpretive slant or some grim statistic to mull over.
