Centering his analysis on social relations and law, Jacoby uncovers the consequences for ordinary people of various conservation policies.
A well-conceived, solidly researched, and clearly written work with important conclusions but even richer possibilities. Anyone interested in environmental history or the contributions it can make to other fields in our discipline ought to read it. Anyone interested in important questions and methods in environmental history has to study it carefully.--Thomas Dunlap, "Reviews in American History"
