Summary
  • "In This Sovereign Land, Daniel Kemmis offers a radical new proposal for keeping public lands public but shifting their jurisdiction from nation to region. Kemmis, a leading western Democrat and committed environmentalist, argues against those who wish to privatize the public lands. He offers a regional approach that takes into account natural topographical and ecological features, directed by local residents with a vested interest in ensuring the sustainability of their communities. In effect, Kemmis carries John Wesley Powell's recommendations to their logical conclusion."
  • "Throughout, Kemmis argues that the West no longer needs to be protected against itself by a paternalistic system and makes a compelling case that the time has come for the region to claim sovereignty over its own landscape. This Sovereign Land provides a provocative opening to a discussion about how democracy and ecological sustainability can go hand in hand."--Jacket
