Game Management
Aldo Leopold
With a new Foreword by Laurence R. Jahn

"Game Management is as useful today as it was the day it came off the press."
—Robert A. McCabe, University of Wisconsin–Madison

With this book, published more than a half-century ago, Aldo Leopold created the discipline of wild-life management. Although A Sand Country Almanac is doubtless Leopold's most popular book, Game Management may well be his most important. In this book he revolutionized the field of conservation.

Aldo Leopold was professor of wildlife management at the University of Wisconsin.
