About this book

The Park Service of the United States has always walked a tightrope between recreational use of the parks and conservation, but now a new threat faces them, that of environmental attack from outside the park boundary. Air and water pollution, noise, acid rain are all damaging park resources. The author reveals the causes of the Park Service's inability to fight these problems, through ineffective legislation and bureaucratic inertia, and suggests political solutions to be taken.
