About this book

The book analyses new problems that owners, managers, policy-makers, and anlysts face in managing natural commons. The topics discussed include the role of financial, political, and social capital in deforestation, community efforts to gain political influence in Indonesia, the Maine lobster industry, outcomes of the implementation of individual transferable quotas in New Zealand and Iceland, and design of multilateral emissions trading for regional air pollution and global warming.

As the editors point out, the commons are not a nearly extinct topic, but rather a vitally important one. Randall J. Hannum Natural Resources Forum "It is hard to imagine a person who would not learn something from examining this book." Forest Reinhardt Environment
