Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book addresses ecological problems from different disciplinary perspectives in ways that general readers can easily understand. Several of the essays concisely summarize the major players and points of view on particular issues while presenting new points that contribute to the ongoing discussion about what needs to be done and how.” — Daniel Kealey, Towson State University

“What I like most about this book is its varied approaches to the issue of environmental concern. There is a genuine awareness in the book that welds such disparate views together into a coherent, readable text.” — John Grim, Bucknell University
