Media reviews
'It should be widely used by students and that elusive person, the general reader, since it addresses so many issues of current concern.' - Helen Meller, Planning Perspectives 'It is, as anyone who has read one of Sheail's papers or books will expect, meticulous in its attention to detail, judicious in its selection of material, and ruthlessly detached in its view of our past. What becomes quite clear is that anybody interested in any segment of British environmental management in the twentieth century will have to start here.' - Ian Simmons, Environmental History '...a serviceable survey text for undergraduate planning courses or for any adult reader interested in this topic.' - B.C. Pearson, Choice 'Provides an admirably clear account of 'human interaction with the natural world'.' - Northern History 'One will look in vain for a work which promotes the use of available sources for further research into environmental history at the local, regional and national level presented in such a well-formed way.' - Sehepunkte
