Pollution in a Promised Land: An Environmental History of Isræl - Paperback

ISBN: 0520234286

[SR: 2341788], Paperback, [EAN: 9780520234284], University of California Press, University of California Press, Book, [PU: University of California Press], University of California Press, Virtually undeveloped one hundred years ago, Israel, the promised "land of milk and honey," is in ecological disarray. In this gripping book, Alon Tal provides--for the first time ever--a history of environmentalism in Israel, interviewing hundreds of experts and activists who have made it their mission to keep the country's remarkable development sustainable amid a century of political and cultural turmoil.The modern Zionist vision began as a quest to redeem a land that bore the cumulative effects of two thousand years of foreign domination and neglect. Since then, Israel has suffered from its success. A tenfold increase in population and standard of living has polluted the air. The deserts have bloomed but groundwater has become contaminated. Urban sprawl threatens to pave over much of the country's breathtaking landscape. Yet there is hope. Tal's account considers the ecological and tactical lessons that emerge from dozens of cases of environmental mishaps, from habitat loss to river reclamation. Pollution in a Promised Land argues that the priorities and strategies of Israeli environmental advocates must address issues beyond traditional green agendas., 4992, Jewish, 4994, Holocaust, 5035, World, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13735, Environmental, 226545, Groundwater & Flood Control, 16244651, Insecticides & Pesticides, 52192011, Pollution, 226548, Waste Management, 226549, Water Quality & Treatment, 227541, Civil & Environmental, 173515, Engineering, 173507, Engineering & Transportation, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 12540, Judaism, 12553, Haggadah, 12555, Hasidism, 12559, History, 12561, Holidays, 12563, Jewish Life, 12573, Kabbalah & Mysticism, 16009821, Law, 15755561, Movements, 12569, Prayerbooks, 12571, Sacred Writings, 15755601, Sermons, 12597, Theology, 16009841, Women & Judaism, 22, Religion & Spirituality, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13529, Ecology, 13469, Biological Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13598, Environmental Science, 13592, Earth Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13602, Geography, 16244611, Historic, 15959291, Information Systems, 15959301, Regional, 13592, Earth Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 290062, Conservation, 52215011, Energy, 14452, Nature & Ecology, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 290441, Environmentalism, 14459, Environment, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10580, Social Services & Welfare, 5571275011, Public Affairs & Policy, 5571255011, Politics & Government, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Details of the book
Pollution in a Promised Land: An Environmental History of Israel

"This book is likely to become "the future point of reference for scholarship on environmental issues in Israel. Tal combines his extensive inside knowledge with broad and thorough research to take the reader clearly through a complex fabric of personalities, organizations, and issues."--Stuart Schoenfeld, York University"This is truly an excellent book. It is the first treatment of the whole array of environmental issues in Israel, and in its historical context - an absolute necessity. Extremely well-written and in fact hard to put down, this book is useful on many levels, for United Nations Agencies and development officials, Israeli and Palestinian government officials, and environmentalists and teachers around the world."--Brock Evans, Executive Director, The Endangered Species Coalition and author of many articles and books on the politics of the environment""Pollution in a Promised Land is an innovative book, and an important one, by perhaps the most prominent environmental activist in Israel. Tal's approach is to take an "eagle's eye view" of his vast subject, now gliding far above, providing overview, now swooping down very close and, through interviews or anecdotes, describing his subject with great immediacy and in memorable detail."--Noah J. Efron, Bar Ilan University"Anyone who cares about the land of Israel should read "Pollution in a Promised Land. It is critical to understanding the social, political, and scientific dimensions of the country's environmental challenges as well as the country's remarkable ecological achievements. Alon Tal is uniquely qualified to present this fascinating and dramatic environmental history."--Tzachi Hanegbi, Minister of theEnvironment, Israel
