Reviews

'The book achieves its objective admirably well ... [as] an edited volume, a rigorous conceptual framework of SNA at the beginning of the book weaves the contributing case studies of natural resource management into an integrated whole. The concluding chapter is ambitious and successful in synthesizing the central theoretical and methodological challenges for future work in the field. Academics and professionals working in natural resource governance are also likely to find the book very useful.' Janne I. Hukkinen, Journal of Integrative Environmental Sciences
