An Environmental History of Britain Since the Industrial Revolution

An Environmental History of Britain Since the Industrial Revolution

by B . W . Clapp (Author)

Synopsis

The present and future state of the environment gives rise to ever increasing concern, but much less is known as yet about the past: the damage that has been done since, and by, the Industrial Revolution; how far our predecessors were aware of it; the steps they took; and the gradual development of a wider concern for the state of the world and our impact on it. This timely and pioneering survey, designed for general readers as well as students and scholars, is a substantial contribution to that understanding.

Media Reviews

'Clearly written, and innocent of scientific jargon, both natural and social, it will provide a good basic text not only for students of history, but also for those of geography, ecology, planning, and (one would like to hope) business studies.'
