About this book

From Jamestown to 9/11, concerns about the landscape, husbanding of natural resources, and the health of our environment have been important to the American way of life. "Natural Protest" is the first collection of original essays to offer a cohesive social and political examination of environmental awareness, activism, and justice throughout American history.

Editors Michael Egan and Jeff Crane have selected the finest new scholarship in the field, establishing this complex and fascinating subject firmly at the forefront of American historical study. Focused and thought-provoking, "Natural Protest" presents a cutting-edge perspective on American environmentalism and environmental history, providing an invaluable resource for anyone concerned about the ecological fate of the world around us.

Crane and Egan have signposted the long path of environmental activism in American history, from the early Republic to the day before yesterday. Everyone interested in environmentalism in the U.S. will want to know these stories, and grasp the larger picture that Crane and Egan present. --J.R. McNeill, author of "Something New Under the Sun: An Environmental History of the 20th-Century World" "Natural Protest" brings together contributions that expand our understanding of the multiple currents within environmentalism, both past and present, and provide a fresh lens in looking at some of the critical battles and efforts to expand the discourse that have made environmentalism such a complex, exciting, and continually evolving social movement." --Robert Gottlieb, author of "Reinventing Los Angeles: Nature and Community in the Global City" "The essays in "Natural Protest" push readers to think harder about the rich history of American environmental activism. Because the authors mostly are up-and-coming scholars, this collection also gives a first taste of wonderful work to come." --Adam Rome, author of "The Bulldozer in the Countryside: Suburban Sprawl and the Rise of American Environmentalism"
