Religion(s):Hinduism
Publisher Name:Addison-Wesley
Place of Publication:New York, N.Y.

Annotation:In this brief text, Guha attempts to contextualize the American environmental movement by documenting the history of environmentalism on a global scale. He highlights the similarities and difference of various strains of environmentalism, focusing on the United States and India, but also addressing the former Soviet Union, China, Africa, and Brazil. Guha explains how the emergence of environmental concern in different locations follows a similar pattern, and he identifies three “generic” varieties of environmentalism that have developed and spread over time. The volume also includes a thorough bibliographic essay.
