Summary note
"The Crisis in the Commons: Nearly 90 per cent of the earth's surface is commonly owned. These lands and waters are incredibly rich and easily exploited. How do we use and care for the commons for the benefit of all? The Alaska Solution: Walter J. Hickel, former Secretary of the Interior and twice Governor of Alaska, describes in fascinating detail how Alaska faced the crisis in the commons and created a solution that could transform how we live on the planet."--Back cover.
