A new issue of the International Review of Environmental History has just been released. The papers in this issue are a tribute to the eminent and path-breaking New Zealand environmental historian Emeritus Professor Tom Brooking, who has recently retired from the University of Otago. Edited by ANZEHN stalwart James Beattie (Victoria University of Wellington), the International Review of Environmental History is a fully open access and peer-reviewed journal published by ANU Press. It is eager to receive submissions on all aspects of environmental history from around the world. Submission details are available at the ANU Press website.
