Interagency Cooperation and the Preservation of Biodiversity

About the Author

Craig W. Thomas is Associate Professor at the Evans Schools of Public Affairs, University of Washington.


“A timely and important contribution to our knowledge of how and when public agencies will engage in effective cooperation and to our understanding of the political and administrative aspects of biodiversity preservation. This extremely well-written and well-researched study will enjoy a wide readership in the fields of public administration, organization theory, and environmental science.”
Chris Ansell, ., Department of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley
“This book is a significant contribution to the field. Interagency cooperation or the lack of it is an important topic in natural resource policy and management. Craig Thomas helps clarify the need for improved cooperation and why cooperation is so rare today.”
Timothy W. Clark, School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale University
“Thomas's compelling study shows how federal agencie, threatened by court action and guided by new ideas about problem solving, are suprisingly able to cooperate informally to tackle the current generation of environmental problems. It also stes the stage for the coming debate about how to make these informal innovations official in ne organizational forms.”
Charles Sabel, Professor of Law and Social Science, Columbia Law School
