BeschreibungAn attempt to capture the people, places, and events which have contributed to the development of environmentalism around the world, attempting to place each term used in the context of a developing movement. Although the focus of this volume is the history of North American environmentalism, entries that are not purely North American in scope have been included because they somehow helped to shape environmentalism on this continent.

Pressestimmen...the volume is useful in providing numerous entries on lesser known figures such as Wendell Berry (ecotheologian) and Carolyn Merchant (ecofeminist). Booklist ...the chronology beginning with 1626 and Plymouth Colony is...worth the price of the book...recommended for all levels. CHOICE
