About this item

This volume uses 56 primary documents to explore historical and contemporary efforts to protect endangered species in the US and around the world from 1800 to the present, in terms of philosophies, social movements, and public policies and the evolution of ideas about the relationship between humans and nature, from exploiting wilderness to species protection to species loss. The documents are drawn from thinkers and policy makers like John Locke, Ralph Waldo Emerson, John Muir, Rachel Carson, and Theodore Rooseve legal documents like the Endangered Species Act of 1973; court cases; and congressional testimony. They are accompanied by analyses and information on the date, place, and significance. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
