A documentary history of conservation in America by Robert McHenry( Book )

9 editions published in 1972 in 3 languages and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected and edited passages drawn from numerous authors and sources on the subject of man and his world are compiled in this anthology. The basic organization of the book is topical and shows an evolutionary sequence. Part I, "In the Beginning," consists of celebrations of nature from two points of view. One regards nature as good and beautiful; the other as providing all the necessities of man in unending abundance. Part ii, "Man's Dominion," touches on two themes--ovations of progress and accounts of how things went wrong. Part iii, "The Flaming Sword," deals with three closely connected subjects. One is the conservation movement of the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth. Next is the complex of facts and attitudes named "ecology." Lastly, the land ethic of Aldo Leopold is expounded together with more abstract ideas of other men. The last part, "Paradise and Apocalypse," presents two visions of the future; one by authors who feel that the future can, or will, be almost a new paradise, the other by those who fear that, instead of a paradise, the future will be a kind of hell.
