Product description


Various perspectives on how to view, analyze, manage, and preserve parks and park-like protected lands are revealed in this book. U.S. experience plays a prominent part in this book, but does not dominate the material. The editors' selection of contributions reflects philosophies and experiences from the Americas, Africa, Asia, the Indian subcontinent, and Europe in 21 essays, plus the editors' introduction and synthesis. The book challenges the premise that science and economic principles are enough to preserve parks and similar areas from the pressures of development. This book will be a valuable addition to any library supporting ecology programs and a good resource for ecologists, economists, geographers, and others studying parks and protected lands. It certainly will become an anchor point for discussions in economics, religion, geography, ecology, and public policy. Highly recommended.--E. J. Delaney, Western Washington University --This text refers to the paperback edition.
