MEDIA REVIEWS
"This volume, as with the others in the series, is highly recommended for academic libraries as a good source to give undergraduates a place to start to get background on specific regions of the world, their environmental issues, history, and politics." - ARBA
"South Asia: An Environmental History would be an excellent addition to all academic libraries, especially those with strong Asian Studies or environmental collections." - Reference & User Services Quarterly
"[T]his handbook offers a chronologically organized environmental history of a staggeringly complex region. By focusing on the crucial reciprocal relationship between South Asia's inhabitants and their environment, it explores the effect of humans on their surroundings, as well as the influence of nature on the evolution of South Asian cultures." - APADE
