This book traces the development of the environment movement in Australia from the first visionaries who pressed for preservation of native fauna and for sanitation in cities, to a mass social movement that challenges the most powerful interests in society. The authors, as professional historians and environmental activists, have taken advantage of their unique position to place the environment movement in the context of current social theory. This wide-ranging analysis will be of value to social scientists historians and activists.
