From the Publisher“As a collection of essays that span more than two decades, the work helps identify the range of environmental issues in areas of urban and industrial life. . . . In bringing this well-documented, insightful material together with new introductory essays, Melosi has performed a true service to the study of the urban environment.”
—Robert Gottlieb, Occidental College
"Environmental Historians and urban historians alike will find Effluent America a useful book to have on the shelf. The collection as a whole will challenge environmental historians in particular to think reatively about how to incorporate urban material culture, technical and administrative systems, and the progressive reform movement more effectively into their research and curriculum."
