Beschreibung

This new biography, the first in more than three decades, offers a fresh interpretation of the life and work of the famed conservationist and Progressive politician. In addition to considering Gifford Pinchot's role in the environmental movement, historian Char Miller sets forth an engaging description and analysis of the man--his character, passions, and personality--and the larger world through which he moved. The author brings together insights from cultural and social history and recently discovered primary sources to support a new interpretation of Gifford Pinchot, whose activism not only helped define environmental politics in early twentieth-century America but remains strikingly relevant today.

Portrait

Char Miller is professor and chair of the history department at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. He is co-author of "The Greatest Good: 100 Years of Forestry in America" (Society of American Foresters, 1999), and editor of "Fluid Arguments: Five Centuries of Western Water Conflict" (University of Arizona Press, 2001).

Pressestimmen

"...an absorbing, well-researched, and illuminating life of an American leader who now receives the full attention he deserves." - Michael Beschloss, Editor Of American Heritage Illustrated History Of The Presidents; "Char Miller's lively, insightful account of the life and world of American forester Gifford Pinchot fills a vitally important gap in environmental and conservation history. Anyone captivated by the issues and controversies surrounding the preservation and development of the nation's natural heritage should read this engaging, carefully researched biography." - Carolyn Merchant, University Of California, Berkeley, Author Of The Death Of Nature"
