Contents Notes In America's haphazard system of handling conservation and resources development, "pork barrel" methods often have been the only way of achieving results. Virtually every major conservation success in American history, from the National Park System to the Tennessee Valley Authority, had deep roots in what is traditionally called pork barrel politics. Frank Smith delves into all the great legislative battles won and lost over the issue of protecting America's natural resouces for the greatest public interest of all the people, highlights the personalities of their participants, and makes special note of the strange alliances that sometimes were formed in keeping the battles alive.
