Encyclopedia of World Environmental History

Reference encyclopedia on human ecology and the effect of human beings on the environment, tracing the interaction of humankind and nature over the course of history. Over 500 signed articles by international scholars, which vary in length from one to ten pages, cover such general topics as climate, law and regulation, nations and regions, places and events, deceased environmentalists, and religion. Black-and-white maps and photographs accompany the text, as do sidebars that feature extracts from historical documents, environmental literature, and religious traditions. Each entry has a bibliography.
