Jamie Benidickson. Levelling the Lake: Transboundary Resource Management in the Lake of the Woods Watershed. UBC Press, 2019.
Jamie Benidickson’s intricate and layered analysis of resource development and environmental governance in the Lake of the Woods watershed moves gracefully across the different jurisdictional boundaries that cross-cut this Canadian-American region. This thoroughly-researched book underscores the environmental, legal, and human dimensions of the efforts to develop and regulate the land and water in Ontario, Manitoba, and Minnesota and brings to life the contests among stakeholders at the local, regional, and national levels over environmental decision-making.
