Media reviews
' ! a must for all involved in the environment movement ! [this] is a concise and thorough account of the way in which the broad issue of 'the environment' has become a well established and at times immensely successful tool of societal change.' Australian Environment Review ' ! makes an impressive contribution to the on-going need to conserve our environment for the longer term. I hope we get more books of this standard.' Conservation Bulletin ' ! an excellent textbook for many disciplines that inter-connect with environmentalism in both the natural and human sciences. It gives a critical and comprehensive overview of the emergence of environmentalism and as well as providing historical perspective on the subject, may well encourage more detailed case studies and analyses.' Historical Records of Australian Science
