This is a great textbook, which introduces students to fundamental concepts in environmental geography and science... It is warmly recommended to bachelor students in human ecology and to master degree students in environmental sciences and geography. (International Journal Environment & Pollution, 1 October 2014) Contributes a much-needed geographic perspective to the burgeoning, interdiscplinary field of environmental studies...Where many environmental science texts operate from the assumption that nature is a place without humans, this book demonstrates that even forests and soils have a human history...Wellsuited to beginning undergraduates. Chapters contain clear learning objectives, summaries, and end-of-chapter questions. Scientific and social scientific concepts are explained with a minimum of technical terminology. Geography students will find it provides a solid foundation for future studies in human-environment interactions...fills an important niche by adding a distinctly geographical voice to the environmental studies conversation. (Journal of Geography, September 2014) As a primer on the sort of ideas that should be considered, this is a useful addition. (Ecogeog, 1 May 2014) "Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduate and graduate readers." (Choice, 1 May 2014)
