Debates concerning the federal role in regulating industry and in managing the nation's public lands are becoming increasingly contentious. This is in part due to the rise of well-organized and ideologically energized land rights movements that have vowed to resist expansion of environmental regulations and even to roll back existing environmental statutes. A Wolf in the Garden is the only book available that assembles the arguments of key thinkers in the land rights and the environmental movements. The broad range of essays in this collection unveils hidden dimensions of the debate and explores opportunities for the environmental movement to revitalize itself by taking advantage of recent changes in the political landscape.
