Had it for one of Rod's class. A collection of essays. It's OK. Fine for a class. Short on context (you need the class). Read full review

User Review  - Phil - Goodreads

This was actually a great read for a political writing anthology ... It gives a nice tour through the history of US environmental conciousness and thought from colonial times right up through recent history--Lots of interesting excerpts I wouldn't otherwise have been exposed to. Read full review
