Abstract:

"... Demands upon the resources of the mountain lands are nevertheless increasing rapidly. Laissez-faire management or the single-minded pursuit of of special interests is no longer tolerable. We must learn to look at the mountains as a whole ; to assess the demands that are placed upon them, as these vary from place to place and time to time, and to ensure that demands are kept commensurate with the ability of the land to support them. In other words, we must learn the many arts and sciences of mountain land management, which will not be easy for a nation lacking a long tradition of life in a mountain environment ..." -- Introduction p. 2.
