About this book

Environmentalism - defined here as activism aimed at protecting the environment or improving its condition - is undergoing significant change in the United States. Under attack from the current administration and direct questioning from its own ranks, environmentalism in the US is at a crossroads. This special issue will explore the changing patterns of and challenges to environmentalism in the contemporary US.

More specifically, it will examine the following dynamics: the re-conceptualisation of core ideas and strategies defining US environmentalism; questions of identity and relations with other advocacy groups (including labour, global justice and women's groups); institutional change (especially the shift away from regulatory policies and approaches); the expanding arenas of activism, to both above and below the state; and, environmentalists' response to Bush administration policies and priorities.
