Public activism vs. political rigidity: the untold story behind the battle for the environment in New York State’s magnificent Adirondacks.

"The mixed-use establishment of the Adirondack State Park has led to numerous political battles over the regulation of development and other land use issues. The author traces the history of these battles from the 1970s to the present. She explores the evolution of the regulatory regimes of the Department of Environmental Conservation and the Adirondack Park Agency through the reactions of organizations and individuals on differing sides of the political battles over the Park."—Booknews
