Price: $195
This latest volume in the series   follows shifting public opinion on the environment. Historian at-large, Micah Issitt traces the path of how Americans think about the environment, with each chapter providing insightful commentary on a selected primary source. Drawing from the popular press, key court and legislative battles, scientific research, social activism and opinion polls,  Opinions Throughout History: The Environment  offers readers mixed sources of information woven together to highlight the overall momentum of developing public opinion around “green” thinking and environmental policy. As commercial and conservation forces compete to shape popular opinion on this issue, readers will see the constant tension between development of natural resources for human benefit and “leaving no trace” thinking in the natural world.
From Smoky the Bear to Earth Day, this volume tracks public opinion from activists to boardrooms and considers an array of issues including public belief in or skepticism of climate science, the establishment of national parks and conservation areas and threats to their future, animal conservation, the environmental impact of energy independence, funding for environmental research, GMO policies and agribusiness and electric cars and eco urban development. 

The Environment provides an essential resource for science and environmental research and an accessible commentary on one of the most complex and pressing issues of our day. Each chapter includes an introduction and conclusion, bulleted topics covered and discussion questions.
