9780847681198: Common Ground

This fascinating study of the role property rights play in preserving natural resources traces the changing uses of the Black Hills National Forest, from its beginnings in 1898 to the present day. Geores argues that, contrary to widely-held notions, local management of property does not lead inevitably to the degradation of resources. Rather, the Black Hills National Forest has flourished as a multiple-use environment when local people have actively helped manage it instead of leaving its care to the Forest Service.

About the Author:

Martha Geores is assistant professor of geography at the University of Maryland-College Park.

Review:

[An] important and insightful work, one that demonstrates with unusual clarity the changing impact of competing understandings of place. It is 'must-reading' for anyone interested in the role of public policy in landscape formation or common property resources. (Stephen S. Birdsall, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill)
