Synopsis

First published in 1994, Going Wild offers a probing examination of the ways in which different conceptions of nature shape our responses to specific environmental issues. In this revised edition, Jan E. Dizard adds a thoughtful and extensive new chapter, updating the controversy over the state-managed deer hunt at the Quabbin Reservoir in Massachusetts and placing it in a broader national context.
