The Great New Wilderness Debate is an expansive, wide-ranging collection that addresses the pivotal environmental issues of the modern era. This eclectic volume on the varied constructions of “wilderness” reveals the recent controversies that surround those conceptions, and the gulf between those who argue for wilderness "preservation" and those who argue for "wise use."

J. Baird Callicott and Michael P. Nelson have selected thirty-nine essays that provide historical context, range broadly across the issues, and set forth the positions of the debate. Beginning with such well-known authors as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, and Aldo Leopold, the collection moves forward to the contemporary debate and presents seminal works by a number of the most distinguished scholars in environmental history and environmental philosophy. The Great New Wilderness Debate also includes essays by conservation biologists, cultural geographers, environmental activists, and contemporary writers on the environment.

Review:

A rich collection of wilderness voices that previews the shape of environmentalist discourse in the ongoing debate about how we will treat the nonhuman world in the twenty-first century.

(Rob Ensign ISLE)

A good book about a very old question: What is the relation between human culture and wild nature? . . . Many of the arguments . . . will provide readers with much to consider about their own assumptions about wilderness and wildness. Read these essays, go for long walks, and think deeply about what the presence of wild nature in these times might mean.

(Bloomsbury Review)

A challenging, provocative anthology containing several dozen essays, by authors from Jonathan Edwards to Gary Snyder, that grapple with the value and existence of wilderness.

(Audubon)

This book has much to recommend it. . . . An extremely useful catalogue of recent writings on the wilderness concept.

(Paul Sutter Environmental History)
