|“After all the experience with alternative methods of resolving environmental disputes, it still is not clear whether and under what circumstances these methods are effective. This book is the most systematic, rigorous, and honest evaluation of this question to yet appear. For those concerned with constructive resolution of environmental conflicts, this book is a must.” |
-Alfred A. Marcus, University of Minnesota
“The editors of this volume have a distinguished record of following environmental conflicts, and provide a retrospective on the relative success of unconventional participatory techniques. . . . O'Leary and Bingham have provided a much-needed reminder that we cannot simply accept consensual approaches as a panacea to resolving conflicts, especially when larger societal goals such as environmental conservation are at stake."
