Product Description

Review



"Informative, suitably judgmental without being intrinsically so, and pleasantly rich in statistical backup...The major troublespots are well covered, such as forest loss and biodiversity, Antarctica, and the global warming debate, and a host often tendentious environment-development conflicts across the globe... and it is firmly up to date even in this very rapidly changing world."
Timothy O'Riordan, Times Higher Education Supplement



"'Dictionary' doesn't begin to do justice to what is really a 'desktop encyclopedia.",
D. Jane Pratt, UNCED Coordinator, The WorldBank
