'Thought provoking, important and instructive, this is a masterly guide to dealing with environmental conflicts' Professor Des Thompson, Scottish Natural Heritage 'This is a long awaited book. Many of us in the environmental policy, management and decision-making business have been struggling along to make environmental values and developmental values fit. This book helps us to have a better means for finding the shared values and actions that most environmental issues entail. It has the heft of sound scholarship and the street sense of someone who has actually been there and done that' William R. Burch, Jr., Hixon Professor of Natural Resource Management, Faculty Director, Yale Urban Resources Initiative 'One of Roger Sidaway's greatest strengths is that he is fully knowledgeable of both the participatory and consensus-oriented approaches, and he treats them both as part of the same enterprise of finding solutions to community problems through dialogue and mutual problem solving' James L. Creighton, Author, The Public Participation Manual, Founding President, international Association for Public Participation
