About this book

Describes a new kind of environmental and social activism spreading across America, one that joins the pursuit of environmental quality with that of civic health and sustainable local economies.

Environmental laws will be around for the forseeable future. But the promise of civic environmentalism is powerful and warrants a significant place in the ongoing American political experiment. The Land That Could Be points the way. - Lemuel M. Srolovic, New York Law Journal
