Toward an Environmental Policy.
Tilden, Paul M.
This anthology of key editorials from the National Parks and Conservation Association (NPCA) magazine, "The Environmental Journal," is both a history of environmental awareness in the United States and a history of the part NPCA has played in bringing about the growth of this awareness. Covering the years 1958-1971, the sense of change in attitudes and philosophy is portrayed throughout the volume. It traces the evolution of American conservation to its present form as a goal of national policy, coupled with an intimation of approaches which may be taken in the future. Overall, the views presented indicate an increasing tendency to deal with entities rather than fragments; with problems rather than parts; with man's place in nature rather than with man and the rest of nature. One hundred eighty-eight selections are included. (BL)
