More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy S. Hansen
Part of the "Environment At Risk" series, these books address the changes on our planet and take the reader to a sophisticated level of understanding of how the risk occurred and what can be done about it. Starting with the philosophical and legal question of "Whose land is it?" Stefoff walks us through some of the science of land use, (biology, ecology, chemistry), and the legal issues involved in land use planning. More than the other books in this series, Stefoff gives us background addressing the legal aspects of zoning, and identifies the stakeholders. While she does a good job of introducing opposing views she sometimes falls short on introducing each person "speaking" in the text, so long pieces are quoted without the reader knowing who the speaker is. The text does have endnotes, but that interruption makes it hard to decide how much weight to give each speaker. However, the book itself is not wishy-washy in the conclusion. Stefoff comes down firmly on the side of ecology. Her sources, a list of further reading suggestions, and an index are listed in the back. Reviewer: Amy S. Hansen
