The field of environmental history in the past twenty years has become an important discipline for every continent on earth. Yet this internationalization has taken a more recent transnational turn, which this essay addresses. Now various scholars are asking questions about ecological connections between countries, about ecosystems that cross international borders, and about the environmental impact of transnational industries, export agriculture, international trade, and immigration. The works under review here address these themes, and the current essay frames the books in the contexts of both environmental history and transnational history, offering an analysis of how they are advancing the conjoined fields.
