"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"Paul Keddy's Wetland Ecology is quite simply one of the best books about wetlands that exist today. It should be required reading for wetland managers."
Jeanne Christie, The Compleat Wetlander
"Keddy makes use of his own keen insights and his extensive knowledge of the literature to provide a broad view of ecological interactions in wetlands, replete with selected examples to give details. He ties together the pieces, poses the important questions, and explores the answers."
Doug Wilcox, Empire Innovation Professor of Wetland Science, SUNY- Brockport and former editor of Wetlands
"Keddy has brought this 2nd Edition to a even higher level. It is smoothly presents material in a way that is suitable for professional, student and laypersons, and as a reference source or classroom text. Chapters can be used in isolation, and the breadth is outstanding."
Eugene Turner, Professor, Louisiana State University
"Wetland Ecology is quite simply one of the best books about wetlands that exist today. It should be required reading for wetland managers."
Jeanne Christie, Executive Director, Association of State Wetland Managers
"This course resource is well written, easily accessible, and a must read for ecologists, managers, and conservationists, as well as those working for regulatory agencies or rendering legal decisions."
R.L. Wallace, Ripon College, Choice Magazine
"... a refreshingly relaxed (occassionally idiosyncratic!) and immensely clear style of writing while putting over complex ideas. Throughout the book, there is a personal feel to the text such that the reader can imagine that they are listening to a beautifully crafted lecture on each topic, receiving enough detail to feel well briefed while being provided with ample literature to look up more. Overall, this is an excellent read and an essential tome on any wetland scientist's or student's bookshelf."
Francine Hughes, Freshwater Biology
Richly illustrated and packed with numerous examples, this unique global perspective introduces wetland ecology from basic principles to advanced applications. Thoroughly revised and reorganised, the new edition of this prize-winning textbook begins with underlying causal factors, before moving on to more advanced concepts that add depth and context.
