Ecological Public Health came Highly Commended in the Public Health category for the 2013 BMA Medical Book and Patient Information Awards.

"Rich in understanding the history of the public health movement, the authors argue that a new ecological sense of public health is emerging based on the recognition of the limits on nature, that nature no longer offers an endless cornucopia of its resources for human use or that the biological world can be ceaselessly altered to human advantage." - Food Ethics Council Newsletter, July 2012

"...this book offers an exemplary account of ecological thinking and is extremely persuasive in arguing for the adoption of an ecological perspective when addressing the seemingly intractable health problems of modern society. It has the scope to invigorate public health, as both project and practice, by providing new and important ways of thinking about both the aetiology of health and respondent intervention activities. As a result, I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in public health, from students and academics to policy makers and practitioners." - Rhiannon Evans, Cardiff University, in Critical Public Health (2013, vol.23)

"Their analysis of the food system, its current negative impacts and the potential for change is exemplary, drawing on their own scholarship and work with policy makers... Overall, the authors' work on historical and conceptual synthesis is illuminating." - Donald C. Cole, University of Toronto, Canada
