"This splendid book will be the indispensable source for everyone who wants to know about America's wildlife refuge system. But it is much more than just a reference work. It also thoughtfully explores the system's distinctive dominant use hierarchy approach to conservation management, and in so doing makes an important contribution to our contemporary environmental literature."
(Joseph L. Sax University of California, Berkeley)
