'This book explores policy issues and methods of analysis on timely recreation questions. The authors consider the tremendous demand for outdoor recreation opportunity, the availability of leisure time, and rising affluence. The increased demand comes at a time when cities and industrial centers are spreading out over larger areas. Which parts of the country are best suited to outdoor recreation? Which areas ought to be preserved? Who is to pay, and how much?'

'The authors...have succeeded in presenting not only the first definitive text on this complex and ill-defined subject, but they have also produced a logical, comprehensive, highly readable book that will remain the authority in its field for many years to come.'
'An excellent job...written so that it can be understood by individuals with a very limited background in economics.'
