Neil M. Maher is an associate professor in the Federated History Department at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and Rutgers University at Newark, where he teaches environmental, political, and urban history. He has published articles in academic journals including the Western Historical Quarterly, Environmental History, and the Chronicle of Higher Education. In January of 2008 Oxford University Press published his book, Nature’s New Deal: The Civilian Conservation Corps and the Roots of the American Environmental Movement, which received the Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Book Award for the best monograph in conservation history. Currently he is working on a second book project, tentatively titled Ground Control: How the Space Race Scrubbed the Revolution, which will examine how efforts to put humans on the moon engaged, and ultimately co-opted, the political movements of the “long 1960s.”
