Pressestimmen

"Celia Deane-Drummond, ... has a growing reputation in the field, which will be considerably enhanced by this clearly written, accessible and well documented, if demanding, text-book... It has a clear and sustained argument, and extensive bibliographical notes and references; and it offers the chance to journey with one of the leaders in the field as she engages with important controversies concerning the environment." Dr David Atkinson, Bishope of Thetford, Church Times, April 2004 "The massive range of research and scholarship ... that Deane-Drummond's tome represents is breathtaking. I stongly recommend her text to any scholar or researcher genuinely serious about the subject matter..." Ecotheology
