With the fate of the environment set to become a dominant concern of the 21st century, this new Seminar Study will be an essential introduction to the history of environmentalism and the political and social debates surrounding the western world’s pairing of economic growth and nature appreciation. Environmentalism considers a wide range of conservation and preservation movements and less organized forms of nature loving (from seaside vacations to ecotourism) to argue that these activities have commonly distracted us from the hard work of creating a sustainable and sensible relationship with the environment.
