The publication is recommended to all human ecologists and environmental professionals looking at environmentalism in terms of civic activism, government policy, culture and lifestyle. It is a companion, providing background reading to students in human ecology and environmental science. It is a source of inspiration for environmental decision makers.—International Journal of Environment and Pollution—
…the book on the whole is an extremely welcome addition to the field and will be of particular value to undergraduate courses on environmental history. It also will be eagerly read by German historians struggling to integrate the country’s environmental movement into larger national narratives. Stylistically, the book was a pleasure to read, fullof revealing and well-narrated anecdotes.
