""Anyone who thinks worry about invasive species is a new phenomenon should think again! Coates depicts a 19th century America awash in fear of starlings, English sparrows, Hessian flies, gypsy moths, and tree-of-heaven. This is a scholarly yet lively review of the factors that have shaped attitudes towards introduced species, replete with innumerable vignettes of surprising critics and defenders of various new arrivals. Any aficionado of invasions will be enthralled.""â¿¿Dan Simberloff, author of Strangers in Paradise: Impact and Management of Nonindigenous Species in Florida ""This is a fascinating work of scholarship, one I could hardly put down. It is a must read for anyone interested in the social and moral context of managing non-native species.""â¿¿Dov Sax, co-editor of Species Invasions: Insights into Ecology, Evolution, and Biogeography
