About this book

This book examines the origins of the environmental movement, and how it became a public issue.

Serious discussion of environmentalism is now impossible without reference to "The Green Crusade". Rubin's groundbreaking book signals a new stage in the environmental debate. This is no anti-green polemic. Neither side of the debate is spared. But Rubin does pose the most serious intellectual challenge to environmentalists by demonstrating that they would do well to drop their tiresome warnings of impending disaster and instead reexamine their own principles. This book is the place for them to start.--Jefferey Salmon
