BIBLIOGRAPHY

The idea of conservation, related as it is to the man-nature
theme, can be traced through Clarence Glacken, Traces on
the Rhodian Shore
(Berkeley, 1967). Glacken follows the
theme of nature and culture in Western thought from an-
cient times up through the eighteenth century, and presents
a comprehensive bibliography. William L. Thomas, ed.,
Man's Role in Changing the Face of the Earth (Chicago,
1956), is the transactions of a conference sponsored by the
Wenner-Gren Foundation, and pursues many of the con-
cepts basic to the idea of conservation. For the development
of the conservation idea in America, Stewart L. Udall, The
Quiet Crisis
(New York, 1963), is particularly useful. It can
be supplemented by Gifford Pinchot, Breaking New Gound
(New York, 1947), and by Roderick Nash, The American
Environment: Readings in the History of Conservation

(Reading, Mass., 1968). A history of ideas on wildlife con-
servation is presented by Aldo Leopold, Game Management
(New York, 1933), and Edward H. Graham, The Land and
Wildlife
(New York, 1947). The urban environment and the
conservation problems related to it can be examined in
Lewis Mumford, The City in History (New York, 1961).

The first books relating the world population problem
to the problems of conservation are those of William Vogt,
Road to Survival (New York, 1948), and Fairfield Osborn,
Our Plundered Planet (Boston, 1948), covering the period
of population crisis following the end of the Second World
War. The modern scope of conservation is presented in
Raymond F. Dasmann, Environmental Conservation (New
York, 1968), and in Udall's book mentioned above.
