Reviews

"The book contains a set of chapters dealing with broad issues relating to resource decline. A second set of chapters by farmers, rural town dwellers, and resource managers focuses on how different groups in the community deal with these issues to solve resource use problems... Most of the contributors' comments are thought provoking as Peter Cullen’s chapter on water demonstrates."
