The purpose of this study, first published in 1985, was to investigate the management practices of the Kuwait City Park System and the relationship of these practices to user satisfaction. The decision making process affecting the parks had been fragmented between three agencies, and this created conflicts in different goals, responsibilities and objectives. The study shows how much impact the uncoordinated and fragmented decisions had on user satisfaction in the parks.

Guardians of the Parks is the unique story of the National Parks and Conservation Association (NPCA).
Created on the heels of the National Park Service, NPCA began as a citizens' organization to keep watch over the nation's national parks. It was charged with the duty of ensuring that the National Park Service remain true to its original purpose: to preserve these wild spaces as "virtually the only places where humans could seek and find answers to questions about nature and their relation to it." This book chronicles NPCA's efforts from its founding to the present day. John Miles has given us an "inside narrative," a history of strong personalities - such as Robert Sterling Yard, Sigurd Olsen, Anthony Wayne Smith, and Paul Pritchard - all struggling to define their own organization and its goals, and also to develop a protected park system for all citizens to enjoy.
This book tells not only their story, their motives, and lasting influence, but also the story of the national park themselves.

Richard Grusin's study investigates how the establishment of national parks participated in the production of American national identity after the Civil War. The creation of America's national parks is usually seen as an uncomplicated act of environmental preservation. Grusin argues, instead, that parks must be understood as complex cultural technologies for the reproduction of nature as landscape art. He explores the origins of America's three major parks - Yosemite, Yellowstone and Grand Canyon - in relation to other forms of landscape representation in the late nineteenth century. He examines such forms as photography, painting, and mapping, plus a wide range of travel narratives, scientific and nature writing, and fiction. Grusin shows that while establishing a national park does involve preserving an area of land as a 'natural' rather than economic asset, a ranch or mine for instance, it also transforms the landscape into a culturally constructed object called 'nature'.
