Ravaged Beauty should be 'mandatory reading'
"The book should be mandatory for local body politicians, and planners, plus teachers and students of agriculture, geography, history and natural science at any scholastic level. It could generate a host of research projects and, after 20 years or so, a retrospective to determine whether the rebalancing policies were effective." - Mary Watson, Former President of the New Zealand Geographical Society
