New Publication (2012): Mark Fiege
History | March 04, 2013
Mark Fiege’s book The Republic of Nature: An Environmental History of the United States was published by the University of Washington Press in 2012.
“This is surely among the most important works of environmental history published since the field was founded four or more decades ago. No book before it has so compellingly demonstrated the value of applying environmental perspectives to historical events that at first glance may seem to have little to do with ‘nature’ or ‘the environment.’ No one who cares about the American past can afford to ignore what Fiege has to say.”
- William Cronon from the foreword
