From the Inside Flap
"This is truly an excellent book. It is the first treatment of the whole array of environmental issues in Israel, and in its historical context an absolute necessity. Extremely well-written and in fact hard to put down, this book is useful on many levels, for United Nations Agencies and development officials, Israeli and Palestinian government officials, and environmentalists and teachers around the world."Brock Evans, Executive Director, The Endangered Species Coalition and author of many articles and books on the politics of the environment
"Pollution in a Promised Land is an innovative book, and an important one, by perhaps the most prominent environmental activist in Israel. Tal's approach is to take an "eagle's eye view" of his vast subject, now gliding far above, providing overview, now swooping down very close and, through interviews or anecdotes, describing his subject with great immediacy and in memorable detail."Noah J. Efron, Bar Ilan University
"Anyone who cares about the land of Israel should read Pollution in a Promised Land. It is critical to understanding the social, political, and scientific dimensions of the country's environmental challenges as well as the country's remarkable ecological achievements. Alon Tal is uniquely qualified to present this fascinating and dramatic environmental history."Tzachi Hanegbi, Minister of the Environment, Israel
