Making Salmon: An Environmental History of the Northwest Fisheries Crisisby Joseph E. Taylor
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
"Taylor's purpose is to help us understand just how hard it is to grapple with ecological problems that are also intensely cultural and political and economic. . . . By showing us how complicated the human history of salmon has been in the past, Taylor assembles the essential tools we need for thinking more clearly about its future." — from the Foreword by William Cronon
"Making Salmon is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how the salmon crisis began and as a caution to those who think there are easy ways to get out of it." — Richard White, Stanford University
"Exhaustively researched and written in clear and graceful prose, Making Salmon . . . will prove to be the definitive study of its subject until well into the twenty-first century." — William G. Robbins, Oregon State University
Joseph E. Taylor III is assistant professor of history at Iowa State University. An environmental historian specializing in fisheries, he has also worked in the commercial fisheries of the northeast Pacific and Bering Sea.
Winner of the George Perkins Marsh Award, American Society for Environmental History
Book News Annotation:
This is a paperbound reprint of a 1999 book about which Book News wrote: Taylor (history, Iowa State U.) examines the social, cultural, economic, and environmental contexts of the decline of salmon in the Pacific Northwest from the aboriginal fisheries through the advent of industrial fishing and the rise of hatcheries all the way down to the current crisis of the salmon fisheries as they face the threat of collapse today. He argues that solutions to the problem are frustrated by the inability of commercial and sport fishers, fish culturalist, environmentalists, smelters, irrigators, bargers, and dam agencies to find common ground.
