9780745662169: The Age of Ecology

This book is the first major study of the history of environmentalism, from its origins in romanticism and the nature cults of the late 18th century to the global environmental movements of today.

Radkau shows that this is not a single story of the steady ascent of environmentalism but rather a multiplicity of stories, each with its own dramatic tension: between single-issue movements and the challenges posed by the interconnection of environmental issues, between charismatic leaders and bureaucratic organizations, and between grassroot movements and global players. While the history can be traced back several centuries, environmentalism has flourished since the ‘environmental revolution’ of 1970, spurred on by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986 and the growing concern about global warming. While environmentalists often opposed the scientific mainstream, they were also often led by scientific knowledge. Environmentalism is the true Enlightenment of our time Ð so much so that we can call our era ‘the age of ecology’.

This timely and comprehensive global history of environmentalism will be essential reading for anyone concerned with the most pressing global issues of our time.

About the Author:

Joachim Radkau is professor of modern history at Bielefeld University, Germany. His previous publications include Wood: A History and Max Weber: A Biography.  

Review:

"Radkau's new book is by far the finest informative read available on the environmental movement in its many diverse varieties from its modern beginnings until now, and the women and men whose passions inspired it. Protests and politics, activism and reaction, love of nature and hatred of pollution – all are shown with a clarity that makes sense to the reader. This is the compelling global story of the most distinctive popular movement of our age, the Age of Ecology."
J. Donald Hughes, University of Denver

"With his customary synoptic vision and idiosyncratic eye for telling detail, Radkau offers a revealing tableau of the multiple histories of modern environmentalism in Europe, in America, and around the world. The Age of Ecology is the most thought-provoking and wide-ranging book yet on its subject."
J. R. McNeill, Georgetown University

"A comprehensive and compelling global history of environmental movements.'
Die Zeit

"An authoritative global history of ecology."
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

"Brilliant - by far the best account of the global environmental movement ... A great achievement."
Deutschlandradio Kultur
