Winiwarter, Verena, ed. “Environmental History in Europe from 1994 to 2004: Enthusiasm and Consolidation.” Environment and History 10, no. 4, 10th Anniversary Issue (Nov., 2004): 501–30. doi:10.3197/0967340042772685. This review presents European scholarship in environmental history by highlighting a limited number of works which have proved significant in their respective countries. The decade from 1994–2004 saw the development of a new scholarly network for environmental history in Europe. Members of this network have contributed to an overview about important work done in their region during the last ten years. A series of case studies on the UK, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, the Netherlands and Belgium, France, Italy, Spain and Czechia and Slovakia are offered. The emerging picture shows the diversity of approaches and themes as well as the different degrees of institutional backing and involvement into teaching curricula. The introduction discusses the language challenges in Europe and some common traits in the development are sketched in the conclusions. All rights reserved. © 2004 The White Horse Press
