Part II will appear in the next issue. Summary below. / In solidarity, Jerry VOLUME 41 NO 41 October 14 , 2006 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.
