Abstract:

Human beings have been concerned about nature and their place in it for millennia. Disquiet about the consequences of human action on the natural environment date back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. The efforts of the green movement can be traced back to the nineteenth century, when individuals, groups, and organizations began campaigning for the conservation and preservation of natural areas, the protection of wildlife species, and limits on pollution. It was not until the 1960s, however, that its more modern incarnation emerged. The green movements that arose at this time maintained the concerns of earlier generations, but added new issues to their agenda, including justice, equality, participatory democracy, and sustainability. The second edition of this historical dictionary provides a detailed and comprehensive overview of green parties and movements, green issues, and green concepts.--From publisher description.
