Inhaltsangabe: In 1979 the Nevada state legislature passed a bill providing for state control of certain lands within the state boundaries under the administration of the Bureau of Land Management. Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming immediately followed suit. Public land users reacted swiftly and the Sagebrush Rebellion was on.
Westerners, driven by the sheer size of the federal estate (99 percent of BLM lands are located in twelve western states) and angered by what they perceived as undue influence by the environmental movement on federal policies, sought to protect and control the resource and recreational use of public lands that they deemed essential to their state economies.
In this book, R. McGreggor Cawley objectively investigates the Rebellion, looking at the driving force behind the movement, the strategies used by the Rebels, and the consequences of the controversy. He examines how the definitions of key federal land management concepts, such as conservation, influenced policymaking and explores tensions that pitted the West against other regions and the federal government.
In the process, he analyzes James Watt's beleaguered tenure as secretary of the interior and the Reagan administration's proposal to sell federal lands and shows how the conflict created an unexpected division within the environmental movement.
Going beyond the Rebellion, Cawley offers provocative interpretation of events in federal land policy from the 1960s to the 1990s and establishes a framework for assessing future developments in federal land policy.
This book is part of the Development of Western Resources series.
Klappentext: "This book goes beyond the political cliches and shallow media coverage and presents the real conflicts that determine who controls the social and economic activities of the western states."--James G. Watt, Secretary of the Interior, 1981-1983
"If defense against one's natural enemies is the key to survival, then environmentalists would do well to read Cawley's penetrating analysis of how and why the Sagebrush Rebellion coalesced in the late 1970s. This is an essential addition to the shelf of the best recent studies of American natural resources policy and of environmental politics."--Roderick Frazier Nash, author of Wilderness and the American Mind
