Summary
"In Environmental Conflict in Alaska, Ken Ross presents an account of the salient environmental controversies of Alaska's statehood period. As "the last frontier," Alaska lured unusually fervent devotees of the exploitation ethic who sought to make quick profits or recreate the pioneer experience in a land of minimal regulations. The state also attracted passionate environmentalists - enthralled by natural beauty - who found increasing support from a public anxious about pollution and resource depletion."--Jacket
