Book News Annotation:

Burton (law and public policy, U. of Colorado, Denver) looks at how the forces of culture, religion, and constitutional law have affected the management of U.S. public lands. Drawing on case studies of national parks and monuments, national forests, and other public lands, he applies spiritual and legal concepts to a variety of recent land use disputes. Particular attention is paid to clauses in the First Amendment concerning the free exercise of religion. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
