Media reviews
'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. Brief though it is, this is surely one of the best histories of the environment currently available.' -- Environment and History
