'Reconnecting people to nature is all to the good, and history can help to make the process more meaningful and effective ecologically.' - Brian Donahue, Brandeis University '[T]he volume features geographers, sociologists, environmental scientists, historians, anthropologists and paleoecologists working on North America, Europe and East Asia. Readers will be pleased by their skilful interrogation of the idea of restoration and the volume's attentiveness to real-world projects. ... Restoration and History exemplifies the benefits of cross-disciplinary dialogue.' - Joshua Specht (Harvard University), Environment and History 'The authors present intriguing ideas that force a larger discussion among academics, practitioners, and students about what it means to live on this on planet.' - James E. Sherow, Kansas State University
