Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Over the past decade, Donald J. Pisani has proven himself to be one of the nation's most thoughtful and meticulous scholars of natural resource law and its history. This book gathers together his most important essays. It is a collection that every student of American conservation policy will want to own."--William J. Cronon, author of Nature's Metropolis: Chicago and the Great West, 1848-1893

"Pisani's great scholarly virtue is his ability to reveal in the making and implementation of public policy the actual environmental consequences for people and the land. These essays show why he is a leading scholar of the American West."--Richard White, author of The Middle Ground: Indians, Empires, and Republics in the Great Lakes Region, 1650-1815

"Each of Pisani's pieces is a model of scholarship and makes a significant contribution in its own right. Collectively, they should prove invaluable to scholars in a wide range of disciplines."--Norris Hundley, author of The Great Thirst: Californians and Water, 1770s-1990s

"A remarkable body of work that serves as a model for understanding the underlying premises of a society and its relationship to the physical world."--Hal K. Rothman, editor of Environmental History Review
