Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An examination of the foundations of renewable natural resource management in the US, intended to serve as a text for students in advanced-level policy courses and a reference for practitioners. The volume traces the heritage of laws and legal customs from early civilizations to the US Constitution, discusses the American heritage of public land, presents the evolution of the major resource areas--water, forests, recreation, etc.--and current policies for administering each of them, and finally describes the national environmental policy, which provides an umbrella over all federal activities and has been precedent for much state and local policy development.
