9780807844458: Protectors of the Land and Water: Environmentalism in Wisconsin, 1961-1968

Since the beginning of the twentieth century, Wisconsin citizens have promoted innovative environmental programs. During the 1960s Wisconsin was again at the forefront of the movement advancing mainstream political environmentalism. Thomas Huffman traces the rise of environmentalism in the Badger State during these key years, when the people of Wisconsin instituted policies in such areas as outdoor recreation and resource planning, water pollution control, the preservation of wild rivers, and centralized environmental management. Huffman focuses especially on the influence of Senator Gaylord Nelson, a Democrat and founder of Earth Day, and Governor Warren Knowles, a Republican. He shows that their efforts--and the efforts of their followers in citizen groups, the business and university communities, and the state government--clearly indicate that the origins of environmentalism cannot be placed along a left-right political spectrum. Rather, the movement evolved from an interweaving of liberal and conservative ideologies and from important traditions and precedents within the state's environmental culture. What happened in Wisconsin is particularly significant, Huffman points out, because of the effect of that state's example on other states and the federal government.

Originally published in 1994.

Book Description:

"The book is well written and enjoyable reading. . . . Valuable for historians, conservationists, and readers interested in a political perspective of the environmental movement. Recommended for all readers."-- Choice

From the Back Cover:

Given the historical record, an important question is, why did Gaylord Nelson, an by implication the state of Wisconsin, play a major role in the rise of the modern environmental movement in the United States? In answering that question, this book outlines one approach to analyzing the origins of American environmentalism as a political phenomenon during the 1960s.
