The US environmental movement has proven to be exceptionally successful and enduring, as demonstrated by the 20th anniversary of Earth Day in 1990. The success of Earth Day 1990 indicates that the environmental movement is not only alive and well, but after two decades it may be stronger than ever. Few social movements achieve such widespread acceptance and fewer still are able to celebrate a 20th anniversary. Why has environmentalism been able to avoid the fate of most short-lived movements and how has it changed since the first Earth Day? Such questions are the focus of this book, which is intended to provide an overview of the evolution of US environmentalism during the past two decades.

Evolution of the US environmental movement from 1970 to 1990 - an overview; 20 years of environmental mobilization - trends among national environmental organizations; not in our backyards - the grass roots environmental movement; the quest for environmental equity - mobilizing the African-American community for social change; deep ecology and radical environmentalism; globalizing environmentalism - threshold of a new phase in international relations; 20 years of change in the environmentalism movement - an insiders view; trends in public opinion toward environmental issues - 1965-1990.
