Simmons, Ian Gordon. “The World Scale.” Environment and History 10, no. 4, 10th Anniversary Issue (Nov., 2004): 531–36. doi:10.3197/0967340042772658. A brief review of some of the major publications in environmental history at the worldwide and global scales suggests that authors are engaging in more studies that eschew a single approach. They are undertaking the necessary but risky tasks of trying to understand and integrate the knowledges pointed up by many disciplines and by experience. The prospects for progress look bright.
