About this book

The Little Desert dispute was a watershed in Australian environmental politics. A new concept, 'biological diversity' was voiced in the halls of parliament for the first time, while the interaction of scientists, government and the wider community marked a new kind of political relationship. This book explores the campaign's impact on the processes of environmental decision making.
