The Conservation Movement And Constitutional Change, 1870-1930
de Kimberly K. Smith
Sobre o livro
This book explores how the Progressive-Era conservation movement shaped constitutional doctrine. Specifically, it explains how courts and lawyers worked, from 1870 to 1930, to expand government authority to manage wildlife, forest and water resources, and pollution. In doing so, it illuminates the roots of contemporary constitutional conflict over environmental policy.
