Managing the commons( Book )

22 editions published between 1977 and 2017 in English and held by 1,239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Garrett Hardin's seminal essay "The Tragedy of the Commons" appeared in 1968 and has been at the center of the debate on commonly owned ground or resources such as Western public grazing or the oceans. This is the second edition of a book exploring the issues raised in Hardin's essay. As scarce resources are increasingly strained. It is ever more crucial to identify those resources which are held in common and are therefore prone to "tragic" waste and abuses. The essay in this volume focus on alternate institutional approaches to managing these resources to prevent such tragedy
Writers on the range( )

3 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writers on the Range is a book by seventeen westerners about the American West. It is a story of place, mostly good but sometimes bad, a celebration of community, or at least its potential, and a tribute to the men and women, neither saints nor devils, who are the heart and soul of this land of desert, prairie, and forested mountain. Yet it is also much more. It is the melding of diverse western minds, backgrounds and beliefs -- ranchers and one-time ranchwives, poets and policy tinkerers, essayists and hunters, journalists and political theorists, and community organizers and urban refugees -- into a fierce resolve to stake claim and take a stand for a land that is loved in common.Simply put, Writers on the Range is a call to citizenship -- a declaration that love of place, respect of land, and regard for one's neighbor demand from each of us engagement and responsibility. It is the challenge to all of us, not just the writers, to see beyond convention and to find in the mystery and richness of the West a future that is more cooperative, more local, and more attuned to the needs and harmonies of both people and nature. -- Provided by publisher

Saving a place : endangered species in the 21st century by John Baden( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This title was first published in 2000: The noble goals embodied in the Endangered Species Act are colliding with financial and social realities. Citizens increasingly face the costs of current policies, while initiatives which fail to respect liberty and property meet serious resistance at every turn. Despite widespread verbal support for saving species 'at any cost', when trade-offs become obvious, and values compete, support for these policies evaporates. This edited collection examines ethically and materially responsible approaches to this problem, written by leading international figures from a variety of disciplines. The result is the most comprehensive and constructive analysis of the effectiveness and viability of endangered species protection available."--Provided by publisher
The next West : public lands, community, and economy in the American West( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first half of the book presents an enlightening view of what it is to live in the West and practice environmental awareness. From the Sangre de Cristo Range, to the forests of the Pacific Northwest, to a single valley in Wyoming, the contributors describe their experiences with environmental endeavors ranging from the birth of the recycling industry on the streets of Seattle to the leasing of federal coal. In the second half of the book, contributors address the mythologies that have set the tone for life in the West for more than a century, challenging "the demons that command center stage in the politics and economy of the region." They dissect and debunk much of the West's gospel: that environmentally damaging extractive industries are essential for economic survival; that conservation is best handled by the government; that some day soon a great leader will arrive to once and for all solve their most pressing problems
Environmental Gore : a constructive response to Earth in the balance by John Baden( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vice President Al Gore's Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit was one of the most widely read books written by an active politician in many years. More than just a book about science or policy, Earth in the Balance presented environmental issues as a moral and metaphysical challenge to humankind. In true point-counterpoint fashion comes Environmental Gore: A Constructive Response to Earth in the Balance. While complimenting Gore for beginning a constructive dialogue and acknowledging Gore's "Impressive mastery" of environmental issues, the authors collected here offer both a competing vision of the nature of environmental issues and different strategies for solving our genuine environmental ills. These authors reflect Gore's grandiloquent view that nothing less than a transformation of human nature and society is required to safeguard the environment. Instead, what is required is sound science and a clearer understanding of how institutional and economic incentives can be changed to carry out the legitimate agenda of environmental protection. Environmental Gore includes essays from eminent scientists, policy analysts, and social thinkers and is offered in, the spirit of finding common ground between Vice President Gore's vision and the insights of the school of thought known as "new resource economics."

Contracting for public service delivery : an alternative for boomtowns by Stephen B Lovejoy( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contracting for public services (e.g., social services, administrative functions, maintenance services, and health and security) is an attractive alternative for communities which could potentially undergo the boom/bust cycle of energy development. Typical communities surrounding new or proposed energy development projects (especially in the western United States) have extremely low population densities and often are located considerable distances from a metropolitan center. The labor force for the new development has to migrate into the area, which creates severe dislocations for communities and residents. A community's ability to supply services is influenced by a variety of factors; frequently, in energy development communities, these factors are unknown and changing rapidly. In these circumstances there are at last four potential advantages to private contracting: there is an incentive for entrepreneurial efficiency; local governments can take advantage of economies of specialization and scale; it is often difficult to establish the minimum cost of goods or services provided by the public sector; and there is the potential for increased government responsiveness to public preferences. Many communities are utilizing the private contracting system, but communities considering contracting for service delivery should investigate the details of writing and letting contracts, as well as the means of service evaluation and enforcement.

Developing Pressures for Migration Toward Rural Areas by John Baden( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gallup Polls conducted between 1966 and 1972 indicated that the percentage of persons stating they would prefer living in a city has steadily declined, reaching the all-time low of 13 percent in 1972. Interviews conducted with a sample of 1,806 Americans showed that while one-third of the respondents currently live in towns, villages, or rural areas, almost 60 percent would prefer to. Data collected in various state surveys are generally supportive of the national polling data. A statewide sample of over 3,000 Washington State residents indicated some degree of preference for life in areas characterized by smaller populations and more open country. When combined with a series of other factors, this preference may contribute to significant pressures for migration to areas that provide easy access to rural amenities. This paper discusses the hypothesis that such factors as reduced social overhead costs of space, the fact that outdoor amenity goods are superior goods, the increased independence of income from location, and the increased costs in high density areas will combine with the residential preferences that are already evident to create increased pressures for migration toward rural areas.
