Media reviews
'This book provides a comprehensive understanding of what has occurred in what otherwise might be considered tumultuous times. The past two decades have seen a dramatic shift in the social forces that affect natural resources policy. This shift has created many new and innovative relationships among individuals, organizations, communities, and forest ecosystems. Policymakers, forest managers, and community leaders will find the book useful as they work toward understanding the dynamics of natural resources management today.' Gordon Bradley, University of Washington
