What People are Saying About This

Arild Underdal

Webster's book is an impressive synthesis of micro- and macro-level analysis of the evolution of fisheries and the dynamics of fisheries management. Her holistic approach yields new and important insights for everyone concerned with preserving Earth's common pool resources.

From the Publisher

D. G. Webster's compelling new book explains fisheries governance, how it changes and develops over time, and how it responds to continual changes in material conditions, social imperatives, and heterogeneous interests. She brings a welcome and heretofore largely underutilized perspective from political science and organizational theory and an emphasis upon the ever-changing politics of competing interest groups and gainers and losers.

Dale Squires, Senior Scientist, US NOAA Fisheries; Adjunct Professor of Economics, University of California, San Diego

Using an Action Cycle/Structural Context framework as a tool to guide her analysis, D. G. Webster presents a magisterial overview of fisheries issues across time and space. Anyone seeking a comprehensive, up-to-date, balanced, and accessible account of issues relating to the management of marine fisheries will find this book indispensable.
