The Green Revolution (Critical Issue)by Kirkpatrick Sale
Synopses & Reviews
The Hill and Wang Critical Issues Series: concise, affordable works on pivotal topics in American history, society, and politics.
The Green Revolution documents the tremendous change in public awareness and attitudes since the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring. Sale assesses the growth of national environmental organizations and the influence of scientists and their theories about global warming, the greenhouse effect, acid rain, toxic waste, and biodiversity. And he shows how environmental concerns affect all levels of society and much of our government's legislative and regulatory work.
'This is a powerful history that should empower present-day environmentalists to fight the good fight. It makes it clear that the major battles for life on earth are yet to be fought, and must be won. We need this inspiration now. We need a new Rachel Carson with a new Silent Spring.' -Michael H. Robinson, director National Zoo, Washington, D.C.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -114) and index.
