Críticas:

-Uekoetter has achieved superb editorial success, selecting quality authors and assuring germaneness to the subject matter. . . .This book has thematic unity that merits reading as a whole. It is potentially stimulating for historians, particularly those who wonder what new periodization environmental history can suggest. The clarity of the essays makes it approachable for students, and it can well be used as a source of readings in environmental history courses.---Environmental History -The Turning Points of Environmental History is a provocative collection of essays that explores 'big-picture' questions in environmental history. Most notable is the editor's insistence on avoiding a focus that is solely European or North American. This collection will be helpful for instructors of undergraduate as well as graduate courses in history and environmental studies.---Nancy Langston, University of Wisconsin-Madison -Some intellectual tsunamis begin with string quartets, others with overtures played on kettle-drums. The former often bores, the latter always deafens. After a while, if we're lucky, both crumble into questions that we can try to ask and need to answer if we are to survive. The Turning Points of Environmental History is a combination tool and a first aid kit of these.---Alfred W. Crosby, University of Texas, emeritus "Uekoetter has achieved superb editorial success, selecting quality authors and assuring germaneness to the subject matter. . . .This book has thematic unity that merits reading as a whole.
