Description

This book explains how environmentalism was firmly established on the political agenda of the United States in the second half of the twentieth century aided and abetted by the efforts of two brothers who were public servants. Making use of the papers Stewart L. Udall and "Mo" Udall in the Morris K. Udall Archives at the University of Arizona also enabled the author of utilize the concept of the political family elucidated by Donn M. Kurtz II in Kinship & Politics (1987), in this case with the focus on two brothers, one of whom served thirty years in the U.S. House of Representatives as the direct successor of his slightly older brother who served for eight years as the Secretary of the Interior. A major feature of the volume is its employment of environmental policy papers maintained at the Edmund S. Muskie Archives at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine.
