The portfolio of essays is excellent, ranging widely, incorporating many different voices, stretching it seems (thankfully) beyond academia into the world of environmental practice, emphasizing the experience and first-hand accounts of the authors. I'm impressed, too, at the emphasis on personalizing educational experience, the developmental orientation, and the openness to multiple forms of learning. The essays challenge the reader to encounter some of the existential challenges that are inevitable in contemplating environmental issues. The authors are highly qualified, very experienced, and surely in Stuart Hill's case, among the founders of academic environmental studies.
