"Here, at last, thoughtful writers--lawyers, scientists, economists, public officials, and nonprofit leaders--move beyond anecdotes, posturing, and incomplete reporting to delve respectfully into the needs and rights of private landowners while reaffirming the many successes of the Endangered Species Act. Journalists and legislators should read this book cover to cover."--Steve McCormick "President and CEO, The Nature Conservancy "
"This volume offers constructive approaches to promote effective recovery of species at risk of extinction. Particularly heartening are those that reconcile economic needs of the working landscape--farms, ranches, and timberland--with biological imperatives of endangered wildlife and plants. Our collective experience under the Endangered Species Act has dispelled any vestigial notion that humans and imperiled species can live and flourish apart; the reader will find thought-provoking guidance for pursuit of an essential interspecies fair-housing policy."--Steven P. Quarles "natural resources and environmental law chair, Crowell & Moring LLP "
"Few environmental laws anywhere have been as successful, or as contested, as the Endangered Species Act in defending species on the brink of extinction. If it is to be strengthened or even survive, everyone involved--conservationists, politicians, and advocates for development--must understand its real successes and failures through its first thirty years."--Steve Trombulak "President of the Society for Conservation Biology, North American Section "
