Conflicts Over Natural Resources: A Reference Handbook (Contemporary World Issues) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Conflicts over natural resources are not new. But they are now worldwide, enduring, increasingly contentious, and in some cases, intractable. In this new book, political scientist Jacqueline Vaughn explores conflicts over natural resources—both renewable and nonrenewable—in the United States and from a worldwide perspective.

Conflicts over Natural ResourceS≪/i> focuses on four major controversies: minerals, oil, and natural gas drilling; protected areas policy; range land management; and timber and forests. On the global level, the work also explores issues surrounding diamonds and precious metals, forest destruction, and water scarcity. For students, professionals, and lay readers alike, this book offers a thorough and balanced grounding in both the problems surrounding resource management and the successful strategies for resolution.

Book News Annotation:

Vaughn (political science, Northern Arizona U.) presents an overview of natural resources disputes in the U.S. and globally. Three opening chapters define in detail renewable and nonrenewable resources; identify key periods in world and U.S. history that defined and contributed to contemporary conflicts; examine controversies in four areas in the U.S.--minerals, oil and natural gas; protected area policy; rangeland management; timber and forests--and conflicts at the global level over diamonds and precious metals, oil and natural gas, timber and forests, and water resources. Subsequent chapters include a chronology of key events; biographical sketches of 20 significant individuals; a selection of legislation, reports, resolutions, facts, and documents providing historical background; an annotated list of organizations, associations, and agencies; and an annotated bibliography of print and electronic sources. For students, scholars, legislators, businesspeople, activists, and general readers. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
