Today environmental issues are part of daily life, a feature of the modern world almost everyone now recognises. Contemporary environmentalism has promoted a way of speaking and thinking about the environment that was not possible or imaginable decades ago.

Environmentalism Since 1945 provides a concise introduction to the greening of politics, science, economics and culture in the post-war period. It covers key issues such as the:

birth of the environmental movement

development of global environmental governance

climate science and the rise of climate scepticism

Green New Deal and the call for prosperity without growth

greening of mainstream culture and efforts to change attitudes and behaviour

challenges the environmental movement will have to address to continue to be a force change.

Each chapter provides a historical perspective, anchoring topics to real events, influential ideas, and prominent figures. An essential introduction for all those interested in the history of environmentalism.
