This is a great history of the environmental movement in the US, both pre-Earthday (1971) and post-Earthday, as well as what politicians and citizens said and did along the way. I would have given it 5 starts, but I can see how other people might get tired of the interviews, because there are lots of interviews and little to no action. But if you are interested in the politics and development of the movement, this will meet with your interest.
