Description

Editorial comment ... 'It will take more than mere science to deal with the wildland-urban interface issue, argues the author. In addition, what is needed are the 'skills, talents, and approaches' of historians and the long perspective that history offers. What historians bring to the WUI issue, observes the author, could be used to improve our handling of many other environmental problems. She explores how to apply history in order to do so.'
