About this book

Evaluates data on park systems from over 100 countries and provides case-studies of 4 (US, Australia, Canada, Costa Rica) showing how and why the delivery of intergenerational goods can vary.

Provides both a new theoretical framework for understanding national public land policy and a detailed examination of the existing land policies of four nations Lowry's theoretical framework is innovative, and he considers several variables that are often overlooked. -- Perspectives on Political Science "Lowry's interweaving of anecdotal illustrations and well-chosen detail within the broader theoretical framework makes for a compelling argument... Recommended for all levels." -- Choice
