About this book

A comprehensive look at the US National Park Service by a former chief of the NPS policy development office. Rettie argues that the system is in disarray, and proposes stronger management operations, clearer and more stringent measures of personnel performance, and training of park rangers to help them become professionals knowledgeable about the scientific management and protection of resources.
