Editorial Reviews


"Drawing upon their experiences as agency insiders, Michael Dombeck, Christopher Wood, and Jack Williams bring not only a wealth of experience and insights to the task, but a refreshing sense of candor and openness about the internal conflicts, competing interests, and contradictions in the federal agencies charged with managing our public lands in From Conquest to Conservation."
(Natural Resources Journal)

Format: Paperback
I am very disappointed with this book. The writing is fine. It is clear and accessible to a lay audience. Much of the material in important as well. All that said, the book is largely a failure because it is so repetitive and poorly organized that there is no linearity to the narrative whatsoever. Which, if this was an edited collection, might be expected. But it's written and organized like a monograph. So, largely for that reason, I find the book fairly worthless. Simply put, there is just a ton of much better and better organized material on this same subject. Much of it also on Island Press, even (try Knight and Bates' New Century for Natural Resources Management, for example. It's an edited collection, it's 8 years older than this book, yet it is much more useful and barely any more out of date). But this one? Not so good.
