“Readers are left with a range of new perspectives and methodologies that examine the varied aspects of ecological imperialism. Agricultural historians will find the collection especially helpful given that many of the essays focus on the development of colonial and modern agricultural practices.”--Agricultural History
“This work broadens the focus to include a more diverse set of case studies drawn from the Ottoman, French, British, Dutch, and German Empires, thereby allowing a wider scope of comparative and transnational analyses. . . . The various contributing authors present detailed, expansive histories drawing on a range of theoretical approaches. . . . [to] bring the importance of ecological factors for the study of empires further to the center of attention.”--CHOICE
“…Environments of Empire is a particularly welcome addition to the flourishing area of environmental studies.” – Isis
"This collection provides tantalizing insights into all manner of imperial, trans-imperial, and transnational exchanges, and turns our attentions to the enormous riches of non-English language sources and scholarship."--Ruth Morgan, Monash University
