This pioneering volume provides a blueprint for managing the challenges of ocean conservation using marine historical ecology—an interdisciplinary area of study that is helping society to gain a more in-depth understanding of past human-environmental interactions in coastal and marine ecosystems and of the ecological and social outcomes associated with these interactions. Developed by groundbreaking practitioners in the field, Marine Historical Ecology in Conservation highlights the innovative ways that historical ecology can be applied to improve conservation and management efforts in the oceans. The book focuses on four key challenges that confront marine conservation: (1) recovering endangered species, (2) conserving fisheries, (3) restoring ecosystems, and (4) engaging the public. Chapters emphasize real-world conservation scenarios appropriate for students, faculty, researchers, and practitioners in marine science, conservation biology, natural resource management, paleoecology, and marine and coastal archaeology. By focusing on success stories and applied solutions, this volume delivers the required up-to-date science and tools needed for restoration and protection of ocean and coastal ecosystems.

What results is a uniqueness of perception, as well as a transforming experience for the reader:'ùSherwin B. Nuland, author of How We Die "Ilan Stavans bites into the apple and invites us to share the fruit of his knowledge. The perfect guide to the biblical universe, he spins brilliant metaphors that help us re-envision not only the timeless tales but also our own time-bound world:'ùRuth Knafo Setton, author of The Road to Fez "An essential topic, scrutinized with profound knowledge, insight, and acuity. A wonderful, precious book:'ùNorman Manea, author of The Hooligan's Return Is the Bible actually a love story between a deity and a people? And what does this love story have to do with the modern world? In With All Thine Heart distinguished cultural critic Ilan Stavans engages in a conversation with freelance writer Mordecai Drache about love in the Bible. Addressing a wide range of topics, from biblical archaeology and fundamentalism to Hollywood movies, lexicography, and the act of praying, the dialogue between Stavans and Drache shows how the Bible is a multidimensional text and one that, when considered over the course of history, still has the power to shape our world. Organized chronologically from Genesis to Exodus and followed by insightful meditations on the Song of Songs and the Book of Job, With All Thine Heart is a delightful intellectual and spiritual treat.
