Examining key environmental ideas within their social and historical context, Modern Environmentalismoutlines contemporary environmentalist approaches to valuing nature, economics, third world development, technology, ecofeminism and social change.
Premodern ideas about nature and humankind's relationship to are explored through the writings of Malthus, Darwin, and other eminent thinkers.
