Adam Rome

I write mostly about the history of the environmental movement. Before I became a history professor, I was a journalist for almost eight years, and I hope that my writing brings the past to life. My book about the first Earth Day was featured in The New Yorker. I've written op-eds about Earth Day for Wired, The Huffington Post, and other outlets. I've also had the chance to talk about Earth Day in communities across the country -- including Fargo, North Dakota, where my talk got marquee billing at the city's beautiful downtown theater! My first book is a prize-winning history of how Americans began to question the environmental costs of sprawl. Recently, I co-edited and contributed to a book that offers historical perspective on one of the biggest questions of our time: Can capitalism ever be green? I'm writing now about the history of efforts to make business more sustainable.
