The management of common pool resources and publicly owned areas is
fraught with difficulty. This book explores the long, complex, and
frequently contentious history of public lands management in the
United States in order to draw lessons for the emerging field of
marine spatial planning (MSP).
The author first establishes that these two seemingly different
settings are in fact remarkably similar, drawing on established
theories of policy analysis. The work then examines the management
of US National Forests over the past 120 years, including three
place-based case studies, to discover recurring themes. The
analysis shows how different management approaches evolved over
time in response to changing laws and cultural norms, producing
outcomes favored by different constituencies. This history also
reveals the ambiguities and contradictions inherent in multiple-use
management of any public space. Next, the book analyzes recent
efforts to advance MSP, both in the US and globally, showing how
they mirror past experiences in National Forest management,
including similar disagreements among stakeholders.
The concluding chapter makes recommendations to those within
ocean-related sectors government, academia, industry, and
environmental groups about how they might achieve their individual
and collective goals more effectively based on lessons from the
public lands setting."
