About this book

This wide-ranging book, which synthesises current theoretical and empirical research, and challenges traditional assumptions, examines the `Tragedy of the Commons', the mismanagement of natural resources. Focusing on local ecosystems, it asks how they can be most efficiently and equitably protected by private, public or community management.
