Reviews

"The resulting work could be useful either in a reference collection or as a primary text for an undergraduate seminar on environmental topics. Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and general readers." --Choice, September 2007

— Choice

"This is one of a 10-volume set, all in the format described in the introductory matter: 'Each entry will include...key facts about the author; an introduction placing the piece in context; the full or excerpted document; a discussion of the significance of the document and related events; and a listing of further resources' (p. xxiii). Overall, the selection of documents for inclusions appears thoughtful, and the analyses are cognet and well written. Supplementary material includes a chronology, a general bibliography, and a good index. The level of treatment makes this work most suitable for academic libraries serving undergraduate environmental studies programs, but larger public libraries should also find it useful. It is also available as an e-book." --ARBA, March 2007
