Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A collection of 19 essays, written between 1976 and 1994, which cover a range of historical topics related to the environment. After a number of essays which treat issues such as the evolution of the limits-to-growth perspective, public values and management response, the role of urbanization, and the future of environmental regulation, the chapters are arranged into sections on: forest debates, the politics of clean air, and environmental politics since World War II. The essays are chiefly concerned with an understanding of the environmental impulse and the complexities of the opposition to it as they arise from scientific, economic, governmental, technological, and land development quarters. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
From the Publisher

“This is a comprehensive and definitive collection of essays, published and unpublished by Samuel Hays, who is surely the most senior environmental historian still active in the field. . . .The research and writing of Hays has defined (and continues to define) the best in environmental history and environmentalism in general. . . . [T]he entire volume deserves careful attention by anyone wishing to review and comprehend the modern environmental movement.”
