Description

The Historical Dictionary of Environmentalism strategically skips across issues, concepts, time, organizations, and cultures, not with any pretense of producing a definitive dictionary but rather with the aim of producing an inclusive, wide-ranging, and global history of environmentalism. This is done through a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, an introductory essay, and over 300 cross-referenced dictionary entries.

Review quote

The country entries are the most interesting. The substantial bibliography has its own table of contents and introduction and includes several pages of Internet resources. * Library Journal * Informative, accessible, and reflective of new terminology. It is recommended for undergraduate and public libraries. * Booklist * Dauvergne uses his expertise in global environmental politics to provide a substantial review of organizations, people, concepts, issues, events, and other areas. This volume is important for its concise entries on key countries, international agreements, environmental concepts, and more. A fascinating chronology accompanies the dictionary, and the extensive bibliography and Internet resources are excellent. Recommended. * CHOICE * The author has managed to cram an enormous amount of information into the various entries and has shown the many interactions within the topic of environmentalism. Despite this the entries read easily. * "American Reference Books Annual" * Entries provide a concise explanation and history of each concept and frequently offer insight into the concept's global impact....Historical Dictionary of Environmentalism does a good job of introducing a multidisciplinary and ever-changing topic.... Undergraduates or general readers performing basic research would find the book quite useful.... For the environmentalism novice, the Dictionary may be an affordable alternative to a much more costly, albeit comprehensive, historical encyclopedia. * Issues In Science and Technology Librarianship * A great place for undergraduates to start their research on almost any environmental topic....This dictionary allows users to branch out quickly and easily in many directions of environmental research. This compact historical dictionary adds to the wealth of information on the environment and is recommended for academic and large public libraries. * American Reference Books Annual *
