The Cold War and Environmentalism

HIST 1970Y S01 [CRN: 25667]

Beginning with the psychic and environmental dislocations wrought by the advent of the Bomb, this seminar will move forward in time to trace the nation's growing environmental awareness and concern as we seek to understand what underlies contemporary environmentalism. In so doing we will look not only at classic texts like Aldo Leopold's Sand County Almanac and Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, but many complicating traditional notions of the origins and conduct of the modern environmental movement.
