The book is wide ranging, covering key land uses, debates and policy measures, together with principles and practices of the environmental management!

Journal of Rural Studies No other book in the field is as comprehensive or as dispassionate. -- Roger Crofts, former Chief Executive of Scottish Natural Heritage I admit to a considerable degree of admiration for an author who can bring together so much information about the Scottish environment. His breadth of knowledge is reflected in the extensive reference list, and these references are well used in the text. This is clearly a book that should be used by students studying any aspect of environmental science, and it provides an excellent source of material for exploring many subjects in greater detail. It can also be easily read by anyone with an interest in Scotland's environment and the factors that drive change BSS News There has been a series of books over the past few years that have attempted to assess the state of Scotland's environment and put into context current controversies over its use and management..[Managing Scotland's Environment] is the best attempt I've seen..if you want a single book that covers the state of Scotland's environment, look no further. Reforesting Scotland This most readable book ... admirably describes the ever-changing topography of the playing field and is strongly recommended.

No other book in the field is as comprehensive or as dispassionate. I warmly commend it and hope that the author will keep it updated.
