“Pearson provides a compelling synthesis of history, theory, policy, science, and human dimensions of the environment in a text both highly engaging and intellectually provocative far beyond its focal fields of European and environmental history. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.” -CHOICE
