About this title


Examines the idea of systematic preservation and its roots, societal factors and institutional constraints which shape the behavior of those responsible for national parks, and how and why preservation policies differ from nation to nation. Includes a broad historical and quantitative overview of preservation efforts throughout the world; case studies of preservation efforts in the US, Australia, Canada, and Costa Rica; and a concluding chapter which reviews the theories, offers suggestions, and discusses how the study's findings can be applied to other intergenerational goods (e.g. retirement pensions and future defense systems) that public sectors are asked to provide. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
