The 1980s were characterized by an unprecedented peacetime military buildup. While the buildup focused on new weapons and increases in force structure, it also involved new demands for land. Nowhere has the military's demand for land been more of an issue than in the deserts of Nevada. This book began as a paper written for Dr. Earl Kersten's Geography of Nevada course at the University of Nevada, Reno, in the spring of 1987. It is the result of a study of planning for military ranges. This includes such land uses as the Navy's "Bravo" bombing ranges, Air Force missile sites, and National Guard tank training centers. Military land use planning is controversial and has always been a highly visible issue in Nevada and other western states.
