Summary
"Defining Documents in American History: Environment & Conservation offers in-depth analysis of a broad range of historical documents and historic events that shaped environmental and conservation issues throughout the American history. This text closely studies more than forty primary source documents to deliver a thorough examination of environmentally related events in the U.S. from 1872 to 2015. Defining Documents in American History: Environment & Conservation provides detailed, thought-provoking analysis of: The Demise of the Bison on the Plains; The Founding of the First National Parks; The Emergence of the Modern Conservation Movement; Ecological Consciousness, Earth Day, and Gaia; Contemporary Environmental Battles. An historical timeline and bibliography of important supplemental readings will support readers in understanding the broader historical events and subjects in the period. An introduction for each of the major subjects covered in the title considers the significance of document analysis for students and educators. Each in-depth chapter guides readers with historical insight and comprehension. The documents included represent the diversity of ideas and contexts that defined social, political, and cultural subjects throughout this period in American history."--Publisher website
