Summary
"Originally published in 13, Forcing the Spring was quickly recognized as a seminal work in the field of environmental history. Linking the environmental movement that emerged in the 160s to earlier progressive movements that had not previously been defined as environmental, the book was the first to consider the importance of race, ethnicity, class, and gender issues in the history and evolution of environmentalism." "This revised edition extends the groundbreaking history and analysis of Forcing the Spring into the present day. Its clear and controversial presentation of the birth and maturation of the environmental movement makes the book an ideal text for undergraduate students. Its deft identification of the emerging strengths of the movement makes it a powerful guide for future leaders."--BOOK JACKET
