Politics of the American Environment

CAS HI 291

When have Americans addressed declining resources and ecological deterioration? Why hasn't every environmental problem provoked a policy response? This course examines how debates over environmental rights and risks shaped U.S. political history from the country's beginning to the present. This course cannot be taken for credit in addition to the course with the same title that was previously numbered CAS HI 360.
