This unique collection of primary documents examines the evolution of concern about environmental degradation, pollution, and resource conservation in America from the Colonial period the present. This edition has a new chapter with documents from 2000 to 2010, a new Resources section that features hundreds of environmentally significant organizations, with descriptions and contact information, more photos and an expanded Timeline. Chapters are arranged chronologically to illustrate how environmental thought has changed.
