Editorial Reviews


This collection speaks directly to the most vexing political divisions within the New West, from urban and rural frictions to disputes over the management of non—renewable and renewable resources. The authors address an impressive range of issues from philosophical, legal, environmental, social, and political viewpoints.

(William Lang, Portland State University)

Land is a perennial ‘hot button’ issue in the American West, and this compilation takes the most pressing, and often most controversial, issues to agitate westerners during the past two decades and explains them well.

(Carlos A. Schwantes, University of Idaho)

Book Description

Considers the continuing and controversial issues of who should own and have access to land, and what to do when private rights infringe on the public good.
