I study the history of environmentalism, consumer culture, and changing ideas about ecology, science, health, and the environment in the twentieth century.
My book, The Organic Profit: Rodale and the Making of Making of Marketplace Environmentalism, will be published in March 2018 by the University of Washington Press’s Weyerhaeuser Series.
For more information about The Organic Profit, I invite you to follow the book on social media.
