MEDIA REVIEWS
"A well-researched reference for those who want to learn more about humanity's impact on the environment, for students from middle school to college." - Library Journal
"A little more in-depth than a general reference book but not quite as thorough as a textbook, this work will give the reader a good introduction to issues related to human interaction with the environment." - Booklist
"With complete candor, and sometimes humor, author Leslie A. Duram (Southern Illinois University, Carbondale) provides an updated look at the complicated relationship between people and the environment." - ARBA
