Overview

Over the past two decades, a select group of small but highly effective grassroots organizations have achieved remarkable success in protecting endangered species and forests in the United States. The Rebirth of Environmentalism tells for the first time the story of these grassroots biodiversity groups.
 
Filled with inspiring stories of activists, groups, and campaigns that most readers will not have encountered before, The Rebirth of Environmentalism explores how grassroots biodiversity groups have had such a big impact despite their scant resources, and presents valuable lessons that can help the environmental movement as a whole—as well as other social movements—become more effective.

Editorial Reviews

In Brief

"Mr. Bevington, a sociologist, has put together a very useful profile of many small groups. They are thriving and making a difference."
author of The End of Nature - Bill McKibben

"The environmental movement is an ecosystem of its own, and Douglas Bevington does a fine job examining the understory that flourishes in the shade of the big green groups. This will be a useful text for those trying to figure out how to build the global warming movement in the years ahead."
Professor, University of California, Irvine - Francesca Polletta

"In The Rebirth of Environmentalism, Douglas Bevington tells how radical and resource-poor biodiversity activists came to be at the center of environmental policy change. Deeply researched and persuasively argued, this book invites social movement scholars to rethink ideas not only about the relations between movement radicals and moderates but also about the tactical ingredients of movement success."
Professor of law and director of the Environmental Law Clinic, Stanford Law - Deborah A. Sivas

"With a sociologist's keen eye, Douglas Bevington gives us a close-up account of the 'alternative environmental movement' that emerged in the 1990s. His cogent analysis offers a robust counterpoint to name-brand environmentalism and to critics who declared the movement dead. Essential reading for serious students of conservation—and anyone interested in the future of Planet Earth."
author of Nature Girl - Carl Hiaasen

"This is an important and timely examination of the environmental movement, past and present. The politics of protecting America's wild places can be slow and infuriating, but Bevington does a first-rate job of showing how the struggle pays off, and why the stakes are so high."
