Summary: "Environmentalism involves thousands of international, national, and local environmental groups, as well as hundreds of international agreements, scores of national environmental agencies, and countless environmental sections in other organizations - from multinational corporations to regional and international organizations. Such environmental concepts as sustainable development, the precautionary principle, corporate social responsibility, and eco-labeling percolate from all of these sources. Every year, new ideas, refinements, policies, institutions, markets, and problems continue to enter into environmental debates and discourses, making it nearly impossible to keep abreast of the constant change." "With this continuously shifting landscape in mind, Historical Dictionary of Environmentalism strategically explores issues, concepts, time, organizations, and cultures with no pretense of producing a definitive dictionary but rather an inclusive, wide-ranging, and global history of environmentalism. This goal is accomplished through a list of acronyms and abbreviations, a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and more than 300 cross-referenced dictionary entries."--Jacket.
