Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is high time that a historian analyzed the role of the Antiquities Act of 1906 as a tool for historic preservation. This story is replete with heroes and villains (or at least obstructionists). It is a judicious view of the debates over the fate of our public lands."—Charles B. Hosmer, Jr., in Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography

"Rothman makes a persuasive case for giving the monuments their earned place in the history of preservation. He has a particular talent for choosing revealing case studies."—Patricia Nelson Limerick in the Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"No one interested in the national park system, the national monuments, or the history of archaeology can afford to ignore this book—or will want to."—Stephen J. Pyne in Pacific Northwest Quarterly

"Rothman has full comprehension of the environmental movement and deftly weaves the history of the national monuments into the unfolding of the bigger story. A major work for all interested in the environmental and historic preservation movements."—Melody Webb in the Journal of Arizona History
