Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Simmons exceeds admirably in his formidable task of introducing environmental history concisely, effectively illustrating its major themes and materials selected across time and space. His style is engaging and accessible. His often witty prose, sprinkled with nice touches of irony, never flounders in specialist or preachifying language ... Valuable, refreshing and truly global." Environmental History

"Engaging and accessible ..." Geographical Journal

"Ian Simmons has written a book that is balanced and informed, avoiding the pitfalls of preconception that too often mar environmental literature." Geographical Journal
