"This book is a reference handbook to those conservation policies and the contemporary issues that affect America's forests . . . It is very efficiently designed in a modular form. Current issues sections, for example, all start with a few paragraphs of background, then recent policy developments, and then conclusions, with numerous references available at the end. This book is the clearly written, balanced, useful reference the authors and publishers claim it to be. It is recommended for all libraries, especially for those holding the Contemporary World Issues series, of which this is a part." - American Reference Books Annual "More than a study of forest conservation policy in the US, this volume in ABC-CLIO's Contemporary World Issues series is excellent and authoritative. . . . Sample and Cheng's handbook is well organized and fact filled." - Choice "[E]xcellent and authoritative . . . clear, unbiased coverage of everything from the history of forest conservation to current issues . . . Highly recommended. All colleges and university libraries." - Choice
