$IPublic History and the Environment$I includes original essays written by public and academic historians with working experience on topics which (1) describe and analyze linkages between public history and
the environment, with special attention to the ways in which historical modes and methods are and can be further utilized to deal with current environmental issues and problems; and (2) treat some of the ways that
historians present environmental issues to the public and suggests new ways to do so. This volume also offers an opportunity to merge the fields of environmental and public history theoretically, thus
providing public historians with a broader perspective on their day-to-day research and writing. It also serves to demonstrate the vast opportunities available to environmental historians who choose to practice
their craft in the public realm.
