Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This timely set looks at the development of environmentally friendly or “green” culture in the U.S. Americans seem to be confronted every day with news stories, blogs, and social-media commentary about the impact humans are having on the environment, and the necessity of practicing green behaviors in order to offset the damage. This encyclopedia explores the development of an eco-friendly culture in America, and entries present the debates, viewpoints, and challenges of green living. The first two volumes contain the thematic entries and primary documents. Volume 1 opens with an introduction and history of sorts, which discusses the process of “going green” in America. There are 225 entries, organized by topics such as “Activism and Community Green Efforts,” “Arts, Entertainment and Media,” “Economics, Business and Industry,” “Education and Employment,” “Food and Drink,” “Health, Home and Garden,” and “Politics and Law.” Entries (Green backlash, Living off the grid, Population and family) are several pages long and include many sidebars featuring a “Greenovation” or a “Greenovator” of note. All entries are signed and end with references for further reading. Volume 2 also contains primary documents, including laws, executive orders, and other government documents offering environmental education. The third volume, The States Go Green, is organized by region, then by state, with entries that discuss environmental topics specific to each state. The third volume also contains a glossary, a selected bibliography, resources, a list of primary documents by theme, and an index. This is a topical, well-rounded set that is recommended for most libraries. --Ester Burke

"Entries, written by 160 contributors, present debates, trends, viewpoints, and challenges for the green culture . . . this work covers proactive movements and works like 'Environmental Justice,' 'Green Publishing Efforts,' 'Green Jobs,' 'Carbon Footprint,' the 'Creation Care Movement,' and 'Biofuels.' Articles that pertain to states (volume 3) present an overview, then illustrate issues (e.g., pollution), challenges (e.g., population growth), and solutions to environmental problems (e.g., sustainability). This set is excellent for exhibiting the positive perspectives of green initiatives in America." - ARBAonline
