Product Description

Review

“Scholars interested in regional, environmental, and urban history will appreciate the book. So will thoughtful residents of San Antonio, if they hope that their city will fare better in the twenty-first century than it did in the last one.”
--American Historical Review

From the Inside Flap

"Understanding our cultural and natural environment and how these factors have shaped our history is critical to charting a course for our future. On the Border illuminates the boundaries and currents that formed our community and continue to impact life in San Antonio. Readers seeking a nuanced portrait of our natural, political and built landscape-and a deeper understanding of our city-will be amply rewarded by this book."-Mayor Edward D. Garza, San Antonio, Texas

"Maintains a good balance between environmental history as the history of public policy and environmental history as the story of the physical transformation of natural and social landscapes."-Carl Abbott, Portland State University

HASH(0xa0a079f0) out of 5 stars Useful environmental history of San Antonio Dec 9 2013
By Brad Rockwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very helpful summaries of environmental battles in San Antonio. The standard political science solutions proffered in this book, however, do not seem to be likely to protect the waters around and below San Antonio.
