Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using the Columbia River Basin in the Pacific Northwest as a case study, Kai Lee describes the concept and practice of "adaptive management," as he examines the successes and failures of past and present management experiences. Throughout the book, the author delves deeply into the theoretical framework behind the real-world experience, exploring how theories of science, politics, and cognitive psychology can be integrated into environmental management plans to increase their effectiveness.

Book News Annotation:

Rigorous science, says Lee (environmental studies, Williams College) can point the way, and politics can help us keep our balance, as we develop the ability to manage the environment in a sustainable manner. He emphasizes the slowness of the process, using the Columbia River Basin in the Pacific Northwest as a case study.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 225-235) and index.
