From the Publisher
This book traces the environment movement in Australia from the first visionaries who pressed for preservation of native fauna and for sanitation in cities to a mass social movement that challenges the most powerful interests in society. It covers the major environmental issues that have been at the forefront of Australian politics since the 1960s.
"...a comprehensive study, which opens new perspectives on how far pressures andinitiatives in a divided society can generate change or conflict." John Gullick, Times Literary Supplement
