Description

This volume contributes to two primary contemporary scholarships - studies analyzing citizen opposition to mainstream environmental agendas, and research on the role of local communities and citizens in processes of implementing public environmental projects. It melds these interests through a study of a failed attempt by federal and state agencies to establish the Ozark Highlands Man and the Biosphere reserve in sothern Missouri and norther Arkansas. In this cae, citizen concerns about private property rights and their belief systems regarding envromentalist-led conspiraces served to undermine agency efforts to develop a large-scale ecosystem management effort. THe work further contributes to scholarship bu focusing on an instance of grassroots reistance by ordinary citizens, rather that the organised efforts of formal organisations.
