Contents Notes
European exploration and the Colonial Era (1492-1770s) -- Expansion and conflict (1770s-1850s) -- Landscape of industrialization (1850s-1920s) -- The Conservation Era (1880s-1920s) -- From the Depression to atomic power (1930s-1960s) -- The rise of the environmental movement (1960s-1980s) -- Contemporary environmentalism (1980s-present). This visually dynamic resource chronologically covers its subject through the use of four-color maps, photos and diagrams, with substantial articles written by well known scholars. Each chapter provides entries on seven essential areas: - agriculture - wildlife and forestry - land use and management - technology and industry - pollution and human heath - human habitats - and ideology and politics. With valuable reference aids--including bibliographies, sources for further research, an extensive index, and newly designed maps--this is an indispensable tool for students and educators alike.
