Description

This book is the first to explore the history of environmental patriotism, the belief that the national environment defines a country’s greatness. The rise of environmental patriotism in the 20th century is told through the intriguing stories of environmental patriots and the rhetoric of their speeches and propaganda. This rhetorical history shows that patriotism is a powerful rhetorical tool that can persuade readers to live more sustainably and engage environmental problems as global citizens.
