Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Bracketed by an introduction and conclusion, the bulk of this text is devoted to specific examples of trusts selected by Fairfax (natural resource policy, administration and law, U. of California, Berkeley) and Guenzler (associate director of the Bay Area Open Space council) to provide the reader with a broad range of examples both good and bad, as the most vivid method of illustrating trusts, their uses, usefulness, and potential pitfalls. Individual cases include the following trusts: Platte River Whooping Crane Maintenance, Dade County Wetlands, the oil spill trustee council, Hawaiian Home Lands, North Dakota Wetlands, Great Lakes fisheries, and the Napa County Land trust. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"This book is a most welcome analysis of whether conservation trusts can live up to their promise as an efficient and responsive environmental protection policy. Both practical and theoretical, it will be useful for local protection advocates as well as scholars interested in the history of environmental governance."—H-Net Reviews
