MEDIA REVIEWS
"With all the attention focused on environmental issues and the decline of Arctic conditions, a book like Canada and Arctic North America: An Environmental History proves an essential 'must' for any college-level or specialty collection focusing on Northern Hemisphere environmental conditions, politics, and science." - Midwest Book Review
"This work is recommended for environmental and geography collections in academic and large public library collections." - ARBA
"It would be useful in any environmental or Canadian history course, and anyone interested in studying technological developments would find an abundance of useful and insightful information." - Technology & Culture
"It is a landmark in Canadian environmental history and an important new work generally. With its materialist focus, it will be of great interest and use to labor and business historians as well as their environmentally focused colleagues." - H-Net Book Review
