Write The First Customer Review

Few authors have covered the impact on federal rangelands of the political right's attempt to reverse the influence of the environmental laws passed in the 70s and 80s and the GOP's assault on federal courts and plaintiff's attorneys. Shepherd illustrates the critical role of federal courts not only in the protection of public lands and how the Bush administration has set about dismantling this court system as part of its attack on "activist" judges and plaintiff's lawyers, but the fundamental principles of democracy.
