The Roots of Sustainability
Ricketts, Glenn M.
Academic Questions, v23 n1 p20-53 Mar 2010
In a sweeping history that begins in the 1960s, the author investigates how the sustainability movement emerged from the extremes of environmentalism. In considering how these movements diverge, he points out that what sets "sustainatopians" and environmentalists apart from earlier conservationists is their quasi-mystical claim that "everything is connected to everything else." (Contains 71 footnotes.)
