Black Hawk : the great Indian chief of the West by Benjamin Drake( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the preface to The Great Indian Chief of the West: Or Life and Adventures of Black Hawk, Benjamin Drake shared with the reader the hope that his book might "contribute to awaken the public mind to a sense of the wrongs inflicted upon the Indians, and to arouse the Christian statesmen of this land to the adoption of a more liberal, upright and benevolent course of policy towards them." Of course, that benevolent course of policy was never adopted. Between the Black Hawk War of 1832 and the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890, numerous wars, campaigns, and massacres took place west of the Mississippi. Benjamin Drake first published this excellent history on Black Hawk and the war named after him just six years after that war ended

Public willingness to pay for local and global environmental benefits using choice modelling by Benjamin Drake( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many environmental benefits exhibit non-excludability and non-rivalry characteristics akin to public goods. This makes it unlikely that such environmental benefits will attract a price in the marketplace. Policymakers therefore find difficulties in determining a correct economic valuation for environmental benefits exhibiting public good characteristics, leading to potentially severe consequences for aligning policy for the provision of environmental benefits with public preferences for service delivery. This research used a choice modelling approach to estimate public preferences for delivery of local and global environmental benefits; reductions in the flood risk to the British city of York (implemented by filling in drainage ditches in peat moorland further up the catchment), and a reduction in CO2 emissions (implemented by planting poplar trees for biomass either locally in the study area or elsewhere in the UK). The choice experiment presented respondents with options providing different levels of these environmental benefits with a tax as the payment vehicle. Analysis of choice experiment data revealed one latent class (LC) segment holding a significant preference for achieving a high level of CO2 reduction through national, as opposed to local tree planting, potentially indicating the existence of 'not in my backyard' (NIMBY) behaviour. Analysing the choice experiment data using the random parameter logit (RPL) model revealed mean annual public willingness to pay (WTP) estimates of £0.48-£9.55, £0.75-£14.91 and £30.93-£51.54 for levels of CO2 reduction through local and national tree planting, and flood risk reduction to York respectively. This research also quantifies the biophysical capacity to deliver levels of CO2 reduction in the choice experiment, using a combined literature review of biomass combustion characteristics and geographical information system (GIS) modelling. This indicates that national poplar tree planting can contribute towards year 2020 renewable electricity targets without greatly compromising on domestic agricultural production
