Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is very academic and very informative. I really like the topic and the author does a lot of research and presents the information in a well written, engaging way. I recommend it to anyone studying the topic, interested in how Americans came to have their values about the environment and especially anyone wishing to write a paper on the topic. It really was a very interesting to read.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on June 27, 1996
Format: Hardcover
Kempton has done a real service to students and activists on all
sides of environmental issues, by going out to find out what
people "in the street" really think. With surveys and interviews,
presented simply and clearly (without a jungle of tables and
graphs) this study shows us just how deeply environmental values
have penetrated the national consciousness.

This book shows that environmental conservation is a majority, mainstream
issue in the USA today. Americans from all walks of life,
even people who make their living from cutting down forests and
fishing our lakes and rivers, are now "environmentalists." And most are
willing to make economic sacrifices to improve the state of the natural
environment.

The book has already had an impact on Washington. After this book
came out, the Republican party suddenly dropped its anti-environmental
rhetoric (though not its policies), and stopped trying to gut the EPA.
