(Human Ecology Special Issue No. 1)
Establishing the criteria of ecological success is a complex and difficult proceeding, liable to generate as much heat as light. The editors board of the Journal of Human Ecology and its Special Editor Geoffrey Harrison, therefore deserve medals for bravery in entering a contentious field at the interface between science and public policy. This book demonstrates the problems of defining success in ways that are acceptable to both scientists and the lay public, and it should serve as a basis for discussion between them for some time to come. Harrison's special journal issue has been published at a most opportune time and should be widely read.
