         Imperialism, Intellectual Networks, and Environmental Change
            The intellectual origins of environmental history can be traced
  to the encounter of 17th and 18th century western Europeans with
  the very unfamiliar environments of the tropics. Between the
  mid-19th and the mid-20th century, the discipline developed
  primarily in the form of "historical geography". A new phase of
  global environment history began with European decolonisation
  from the 1950s onwards. The imminence of a nuclear catastrophe
  and pesticide pollution stimulated the rise of a worldwide and
  populist environmental movement that reached full fruition in
  the 1970s. The first of this two-part article looks at the
  origins of the discipline.
