From the Publisher"Knott's excellent overview of the issues and perspectives of management and uses of the Adirondack forest draws upon this forest to frame the wider land-use debate taking place across the nation, especially in the Northwest. . . . This book also contributes to the emerging concepts within ecosystem management, using the critical lessons learned in the Adirondack forest as an example. Excellent bibliography; good illustrations; thorough index. General readers; upper-division undergraduates through professionals."—Choice
"An interesting read for those studying American land use conflicts and those with regional interests in the North Country. Though it has a particular philosophical perspective, it is straightforward about its perspective and intelligently portrays the complexities of the Adirondack situation."—Stephen J. Stadler, Oklahoma State University, Journal of Cultural Geography. Spring/Summer 1998.
"Knott's first-hand reportage from the dramatic public hearings held in the Park on the Commission's report is riveting, an example of the value of participant observation."—Blueline.
"While locals are inherently integral to land use decisions, their story is seldom coherently placed within the context of competing interests. Knott effectively places local perspectives in the Adirondack land use conflict to illustrate the need for participatory approaches to decision-making."—Valerie A. Luzadis, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry
