About this book

The Green Revolution documents the tremendous change in public awareness and attitudes since the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring. Sale assesses the growth of national environmental organizations and the influence of scientists and their theories about global warming, the greenhouse effect, acid rain, toxic waste, and biodiversity. And he shows how environmental concerns affect all levels of society and much of our government's legislative and regulatory work.

Media reviews

"This is a powerful history that should empower present-day environmentalists to fight the good fight. It makes it clear that the major battles for life on earth are yet to be fought, and must be won. We need this inspiration now. We need a new Rachel Carson with a new Silent Spring."
– Michael H. Robinson, director National Zoo, Washington, D.C.

"A book we've been waiting for without knowing it. This short but astute history chronicles the remarkable growth of the American environmental movement. In so doing, it yields some cautious hope that we're well started on the most profound – and most perilous – journey of our history."
– Bill McKibben

"The Green Revolution is at once a history and a critique of modern environmentalism. It is a virtual primer on current environmental politics. Like all of Sale's books, it is impassioned in its advocacy and provocative in its analysis."
– Richard White, University of Washington

"The Green Revolution is a fine, well-balanced, concise, up-to-date history of modern environmentalism. It fills a great gap and should be widely used in schools and colleges."
– George Sessions, Sierra College

"I doubt that any 108 pages in the English language come close to educating the reader about the environment – its despoilers and its defenders – as well as Kirkpatrick Sale's small volume. The Green Revolution is a tour de force. It is a brief but comprehensive, analytical but readable, insightful, factual, current but historical and futuristic."
– Ralph Nader
