DescriptionThe Wilderness Debate Rages On is a collection of mostly previously published papers about the meaning, value, and role of wilderness and continues the discussion that was propelled by the editors' previous book The Great New Wilderness Debate (also a collection of papers) published in 1998. The editors state that this sequel to their previous book is mandated because "this debate over the concept of wilderness continues to rage" (p. 4). The "debate" in both titles is between those who think that the idea of wilderness is an anachronism that is no longer valid or appropriate in today's world and those who continue to defend the idea of wilderness.
