New book publication “A History of Environmentalism: Local Struggles, Global Histories”, by Marco Armiero and Lise Sedrez (Ed.)
‘Think globally, act locally' has become a call to environmentalist mobilization, proposing a closer connection between global concerns, local issues and individual responsibility. “A History of Environmentalism” explores this dialectic relationship, with ten contributors from a range of disciplines providing a history of environmentalism that frames global themes and narrates local stories.
More than offering an exhaustive picture of the entire environmentalist movement, A History of Environmentalism highlights the importance of the experience of environmentalism within local communities. It offers a worldwide and polyphonic perspective, making it key reading for students and scholars of global and environmental history and political ecology.
