Product Description


?Tober has served as a visiting professor in nonprofit organizations and public policy at Yale. His previous works include Who Owns the Wildlife?. In his latest book, Tober considers the activities of nonprofit organizations that attempt to influence public policy dealing with wildlife. The author favors those organizations interested in preserving such wildlife, rather than those that foster hunting or that assess the value of wildlife in the context of economic development. Tober provides sketches of the makeup of the various organizations covered, the constituents they serve, their budgets, and the means they use to influence public policy. The author focuses particularly on the late 1970s and the 1980s, and uses the controversies over preserving the California condor and the bobcat as case studies. The book includes a selected bibliography, an adequate index, and tables that outline the founding dates, scope of interests, and constituencies served by these organizations. For college and university libraries with collections on environmental studies and public policy.?-Choice
