Reviews

"The volume is an ideal and recommended read for scholars, students, and resource management professionals and policy makers." --Anthropological Quarterly


"This book asks an important question: why are so many indigenous peoples excluded from resource management in their homelands, where their knowledge would be vital? The book's core consists of four very incisive case studies that provide straightforward accounts of collaborative efforts to forge stewardship, but not without frequent conflict and intercultural misunderstandings. This book contains an important message that shines through. Summing Up: Recommended." --B.E. Johansen, CHOICE


"What makes this book so worthwhile is its dual commitment to critical scholarship, notable especially in the early chapters, and to pragmatic solutions. Its careful analysis of the obstacles to making collaborative stewardship a reality makes sobering reading but equally provides a solid basis for incremental change.."

--Dennis Byrne, Archaeology in Oceania
