Educator and environmentalist Martin A. Nie is the author of Beyond Wolves: The Politics of Wolf Recovery and Management. In this 2003 work Nie examines the controversies surrounding wolf recovery programs in several areas of the United States, including Alaska, the Northern Rockies, and New England. The emphasis in Beyond Wolves is on "wolf recovery as value-based political conflict," according to Library Journal contributor Lynn C. Badger, who added that "recovery success will depend on the extent to which the program is inclusive, participatory, and democratic." On the University of Montana Web site, Nie wrote that he has a special interest in natural resources governance, "the political institutions and decision-making processes used to handle difficult policy problems."
