'This excellent, scholarly text is certainly directed at the United States, but should have a wider appeal for anyone interested in the history and development of the environmental movement. The author is to be congratulated for the depth of research and the excellent style of teaching.' Resources and Conservation 'Culhane's book is the most significant contribution to the field of public land administration since Herbert Kaufman's The Forest Ranger… The author presents a well-documented, thorough analysis of the two key federal land management agencies - the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management-… This book will be widely used by students in government, public administration, and natural resources. It is a must for the undergraduate and graduate library.' Choice
