American Geography and the Environment (Paperback)

American Geography and the Environment By Joel Newsome Cover Image
Special Order


The quest for resources, from farmland to gold to oil, has shaped much of U.S. history. Ensuing competition for these resources has had a tangible effect on both American geography and the environment. This book shows how American communities formed over time in response to environmental factors and how policy, culture, and day-to-day life in the United States is a response to the land itself. Also included is a look at modern debates over the best way to protect the environment while encouraging innovation, including the role of the EPA and other government organizations in regulation.
