Review:

"The Palgrave Environmental Reader gives a vital historical perspective to issues of environmental politics and justice. The anthology does not simply sample the usual literary naturalists; rather, editors Daniel Payne and Richard Newman have selected documents across a wide spectrum of American public discourse, from William Penn to Winona LaDuke, from George Perkins Marsh to E. O. Wilson, from the "Forever Wild" provision of the New York state constitution to Luella Kenny's "Statement to the Annual Meeting of Occidental Petroleum Shareholders." For a truly original, interdisciplinary anthology of critical texts, teachers of environmental studies should look first at The Palgrave Environmental Reader."--James Perrin Warren, author of John Burroughs and the Place of Nature

"Daniel Payne and Richard Newman have assembled a generic diversity of environmental writing unmatched in any other collection I've encountered. As well as basic texts like Garret Hardin's Tragedy of the Commons, this anthology ranges from Blackstone's Commentaries to the text of the Kyoto Protocol. They have "expanded the boundaries" of environmental writing beyond ecocritical theory into concrete practice. This volume is essential to a 21st-century perspective on environmental history and literature."--Fred Waage, editor Teaching Environmental Literature

"Expertly edited, with an informative introduction and helpful headnotes, The Palgrave Environmental Reader collects some of the most important primary documents in the history of American environmental thought. Covering a range of issues from wilderness preservation to environmental justice, it balances calls for personal transformation with an appreciation of how environmental law, public policy, and land use planning also shape our fate. Best of all, it features substantive selections--not the bite-size chunks of many anthologies--that will allow readers to compare these differing visions in all their complexity. A welcome addition to the field of environmental studies."--Daniel J. Philippon, author of Conserving Words: How American Nature Writers Shaped the Environmental Movement

"This is a welcomed collection of essays that illuminate the development of environmental literature, history, and ideas in the United States. It will be a useful supplement to a variety of courses in the environmental humanities and can provide a larger context for the environmental sciences."--Ralph H. Lutts, Goddard College

"The breadth and depth of this reader invites careful study of the roots and development of environmental thinking and action. The excerpts from colonial authors show that environmental awareness is rooted deep in American literature and culture, while the late twentieth century selections demonstrate just how important environmental considerations are to almost every aspect of our lives. The collection proves that environmental awareness and ethics have long been with us, and that they are here to stay."--Jeff Walker, Department of Geology and Geography, Vassar College

"This unique and much-needed collection of primary sources in environmental history is a valuable resource for courses in environmental history or studies, environmental law, or government policy. With readings that range from Benjamin Franklin to Rachel Carson to Winona LaDuke, the collection includes many illuminating lesser known writers, as well. A splendid resource for teachers, students, and policy makers, for provoking discussion and understanding of crucial environmental issues as they have evolved and changed over the years."--Charlotte ZoŽ Walker, editor, Sharp Eyes: John Burroughs and American Nature Writing and The Art of Seeing Things: Essays by John Burroughs
