Contents Notes
"Kendrick Clements illuminates the influence of Hoover's broadly conceived ideas about conservation on almost every economic policy of the Republican era, from expansion of the National Park system to efforts to eliminate radical swings of the business cycle." "To some extent Hoover's policies anticipated directions that would be pursued by modern environmentalists. The National Conference on Outdoor Recreation brought together wilderness advocates and urban planners, and passage of the first federal law to limit oil pollution in navigable waters marked the beginning of an ongoing effort to control the effects of industrialization on the environment. Hoover's advocacy of pleasant, affordable housing introduced the idea that our everyday environment is the starting point for environmental concerns."--Jacket.
