About this book

In the US, the `war over the West' being waged between environmentalists and the wise use movement that represents traditional user groups is becoming an increasingly bitter struggle to influence public land use decisions. This book examines Congress's efforts to balance ecological and economic values in the development of federal land policies over the last three decades. Chapters cover the management of rangeland, timber, energy, mineral, and wilderness resources.


Political organizations and public-lands policy-making, John Freemuth and Gregg Cawley; livestock grazing on public rangelands, Charles Davis; timber production and the national forests, George Hoberg; hard-rock mining, Christopher Klyza; energy development, David H. Davis; national parks, William Lowry; wilderness policy, Craig Allin; political change and policy reform, C. Davis.
