About this book

This work argues that only through an historical and sociological approach is it possible to understand how and why specific environmental groups follow either social movement tactics or interest group strategies. It includes a study of the historical background of the Sierra Club, and an examination of its place in contemporary society.


Movement organizations and sociology; a constructivist view; a practice of problemization; a practice of political effectiveness; the historical background of the Sierra Club; the Sierra Club in a contemporary landscape; environmental groups in a political and cultural context.
