Review by Library Journal Review

The evolution of environmental history is chronicled in this compilation of 18 essays from the first 19 volumes of Environmental History Review and its predecessor, Environmental Review. Reflecting the interdisciplinary character of the field, six chapters explore its changing status and shifting perspectives since the 1960s. Authors include William Cronin, who discusses Americans' perception of wilderness; Robert Gottlieb, who wants the environmental movement's agenda and membership to include issues relevant to women and minorities; and Donald Pisani, who addresses the issue of Native American water rights in the West. The editors supply a succinct account of the journal as it mirrors the unfolding scope of environmental history. Recommended for larger public and academic libraries.‘Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley Coll., Mt. Carmel, Ill. (c) Copyright 2010.
