Crisis of the Wasteful Nation

Ian Tyrrel

University of Chicago Press

Documents the rise of international concern over the depletion of wildlife and other resources on a global level and how that concern connected with and became articulated into American conservation. This was achieved through international organizational contacts, the mobilization of professional networks, media-savvy politics, and reform group cooptation. Stresses the importance of a perceived global forestry crisis and of Gifford Pinchot’s central role as Roosevelt’s advisor.

Keywords:   international organizations, professional groups, networks, media, forestry, Gifford Pinchot
