  • Forestry and the Politics of Sustainability in Early China
    • Authors: Miller I.
      Pages: 594 - 617
      Abstract: AbstractBetween the sixth and second centuries bce, Chinese states developed offices to oversee the sustainable use of forest resources. This era, often cited as a period of rampant environmental degradation, also saw the emergence of a discourse of sustainability. The early philosopher texts criticized the environmental and moral degradation of their era in order to promote specific policy interventions. In response to the deforestation they depicted, moralist and pragmatist philosophers alike argued for regulations on land use as the basis of a sustainable political order. Early states used these ideas to justify state forestry, culminating in extensive forest bureaucracies under the Qin and Han empires in the second and third centuries. These forestry institutions were among the earliest in the world, preceding state forestry programs in Europe and Japan by nearly two millennia. Yet even at the early apex of state forestry, many thinkers criticized government regulation as immoral or ineffective and promoted the self-sufficient community as an alternative basis of conservation. These early texts were established as the core of the Chinese philosophical tradition, and their arguments for and against state regulation became the basis of many later debates over sustainability and institutional forestry.

  • Fear and Abundance: Reshaping of Royal Forests in Sixteenth-Century Poland
           and Lithuania
    • Authors: Falkowski M.
      Pages: 618 - 642
      Abstract: AbstractThis article analyzes new restrictive forest legislation announced by king Sigismund Augustus (d. 1572) in Poland and Lithuania. In the sixteenth century, eastern Europe remained the most densely forested region on the continent; Poland and Lithuania, however, were blessed not only with resources but also with an unusual combination of plains, forests, rivers, and seaports that facilitated the development of large-scale forest industries. Drawing on a combination of royal documents, domain surveys, correspondence, customs registers, and contemporary literature, I argue that the significant resources available to the king allowed him to think of the forest economy and long-distance trade in its products as the backbone of state finances. I recognize changes in the forest regime as part of the greater state reforms redefining the relationship of the king’s subjects to his domain, as well as a strategic move designed to increase treasury income to finance the military during the Livonian War (1558–83). I also argue that changes in the forest regime were established because of the abundance of resources, unlike in many contemporary European states that introduced prohibitive laws as a result of wood shortage fears.

      Abstract: AbstractIf there is no word for wilderness in French, how did early colonists, missionaries, and explorers experience the environments of northeastern North America to which they came in the seventeenth century' This article returns to the French term for the nature that they encountered—sauvage, or wild—to suggest that French colonialism actively sought out those places and plants that could be identified as wild. These were invariably the product of Europe and North America’s shared geologic and evolutionary histories, related species of common botanical genera and families. In the encounters between French colonists and the plants they called sauvage, we can glimpse the emergence of a French colonial political ecology that identified the observable differences between American and European flora as wildness. Focusing on the opportunities to rehabilitate sauvage fruits and landscapes, empire itself was recast as a recuperative project that would redeem both indigenous peoples and American environments. The invisibility of this history without a careful attention to language suggests the need to reassess where and how we use words such as the “wilderness” to describe the experiences of communities that spoke (and still speak) other languages.

  • Geophysical Agency in the Anthropocene: Engineering a Road and River to
           Rocky Mountain National Park
    • Authors: Wright W.
      Pages: 668 - 695
      Abstract: AbstractProponents of the Anthropocene epoch posit that human activities now powerfully influence the Earth’s governing systems. Many environmental scholars have offered alternative concepts for this new geologic epoch to challenge its outward anthropocentrism and tendency to flatten the diversity of the world’s people into a single planetary humanity. But in doing so, these critiques distort a more distributive and systemic understanding of agency. This article suggests that geophysical agency offers historians a more useful and precise conceptual term for interpreting connections among human ideas and actions, material systems, and geologic change. One way that human undertakings have functioned geologically has been by moving earth and inscribing asphalt over an extended chronology of the Great Acceleration. Examining 1930s highway construction in Colorado’s Big Thompson Canyon offers a window into some of the historical processes that have defined geophysical agency.

  • Polio, DDT, and Disease Risk in the United States after World War II
    • Authors: Conis E.
      Pages: 696 - 721
      Abstract: AbstractBetween the end of World War II and the early 1950s, researchers, municipal officials, and individuals from Georgia to California employed DDT to stop polio by killing flies, a suspected but debated actor in the disease’s transmission. Despite the prominent place of both polio and DDT in postwar US history, this episode has received scant attention from historians. This essay argues that this little-examined moment captures the tensions between shifting epidemiological concerns and etiological paradigms at midcentury and offers an additional explanation for a risky pesticide’s cultural acceptance. In the context of the certain risk of polio, DDT’s health and environmental risks—well publicized and publicly discussed after the war—receded as its public health promise expanded. The use of DDT in anti-polio efforts and the arguments against it reflected competition between public health approaches based on sanitation and bacteriology, as well as differing conceptions of the environment’s role in human disease. The pesticide was deployed against polio for the better part of a decade despite negative scientific findings concerning its effectiveness. This decision to act on expectation over experimental evidence, this essay argues, reflected the fact that DDT was a war-born “brand” that benefited from ingrained germ consciousness, a boom in consumer culture and advertising, and scientific uncertainty about polio, all of which created a context in which the availability of DDT enabled it to shape research and interventions focused on the disease.

  • Gallery Editor’s Note
    • Authors: Dunaway F.
      Pages: 722 - 722
      Abstract: During the 1970s, the recently created Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed an innovative documentary project: the agency sponsored photographers to travel around the United States and record visual evidence of environmental conditions. Although modeled after the influential Farm Security Administration photography program of the 1930s, the EPA project never attained the same cultural status as its New Deal predecessor. Nor has Documerica attracted much attention from environmental historians. In this issue’s Gallery essay, Caleb Wellum shows how this collection offers a unique visual archive of the decade’s pivotal environmental dilemmas. Looking at four photographs of petroleum infrastructure, Wellum takes us on a wide-ranging visual journey—from an oil platform off the California coast and the proposed path of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System to a pile of discarded oil barrels and a customer standing in a gas line. Even as he detects ambivalence in these pictures, Wellum also emphasizes how Documerica photographers tended to promote managerial, technocratic solutions to systemic environmental problems. His essay provides new insight into the much-debated energy crisis and reflects more broadly on the contested cultural meanings of oil.

  • The Ambivalent Aesthetics of Oil: Project Documerica and the Energy Crisis
           in 1970s America
    • Authors: Wellum C.
      Pages: 723 - 732
      Abstract: As energy joined the list of concerns driving the environmental movement in the 1970s, documentary photographers working for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) produced a series of images that questioned their nation’s relationship to oil. This photograph, taken by Charles O’Rear in 1975, exemplifies the ways in which these EPA photographers broke with the “technological sublime” tradition in American culture by doubting the purported benefits of oil production technologies (figure 1).11 It imagines an offshore oil platform as a threat to the future of the body politic rather than a manifestation of national progress.
