Praise For A History of Environmental Politics Since 1945

“ . . . the book succeeds in synthesizing an enormous range of issues and ideas into one readable book.  . . .The style of the book is very logical and concise, which means that upper-level undergraduates as well as scholars can follow its arguments. Those scholars and students of environmental politics and policy in the USA and advanced idustrial nations more generally will greatly profit from reading this book.”
