Christopher C. Sellers, Crabgrass Crucible: Suburban Nature and the Rise of Environmentalism in Twentieth-Century America (2012). Seller's in his book, Crabgrass Crucible examines the birth and relationship of the American suburb in the twentieth century. Focusing on the post-war expansion of the suburbs in New York and Los Angeles, the author argues that despite the role of the suburbs in altering the natural state, the suburbs with their unique connection with their environment ironically sparked the birth of the environmental movement in this country. A fascinating read for anyone interested in the birth of the environmental movement in the U.S.
