The Palgrave Environmental Reader explores America's evolving fascination with nature and environmental concerns. From the New England Transcendentalists to the UN convention on climate change, this book includes works by Thomas Jefferson, Henry David Thoreau, Theodore Roosevelt, Rachel Carson, E.O. Wilson, and others. Consisting of thirty-five important pieces covering a variety of issues, this reader distinguishes itself from other writing on the subject by presenting more extensive excerpts and by emphasizing themes such as environmental activism, racism, and law.
