Review:

'Nature's End is both an adept explanation of the ways in which historians can make the environment a central theme, and a treasure trove packed with gems of essays by leading scholars who show how it is done. This book is a state-of-the-art guide to contemporary questions in global environmental history.'

- J. Donald Hughes, University of Denver, USA

'This volume makes a contribution not only to the history of the environment, but also to its historiography and to the history of thought about the environment It contributes to bridge-building between disciplines and also to a dialogue with other kinds of historian, whether they work on politics or culture.'

- Peter Burke, University of Cambridge, UK

'Leading scholars of environmental history clarify the discipline's epistemological context

and offer compelling case studies. Nature's End is indispensable reading for all who seek to meld the various communities of knowledge of our world.'

- Carole Crumley, University of North Carolina, USA

'Nature's End deserves a wide audience. Environmental historians of all sorts will find it useful, as few such collections can boast such a rich and diverse array of contributions, ranging widely in geographical and chronological scope and presenting several methodological and conceptual approaches.' - William Cavert, H-Environment

'...thought-provoking...Hopefully, this volume will guide environmental and cultural historians towards fruitful interaction.' - European History Quarterly
