Rough Waters: Nature and Development in an East African Marine Park
Battling for the marine park Ch. Prized for its spectacular coral reefs , the park is also an important marine habitat containing breeding and nesting grounds for threatened species such as the dugong. The marine park was intended to address charges that national parks, which generally have been based upon exclusionary preservationist models, disregard the economic welfare of poor citizens and are authoritarian in their orientation.
In the work, Walley notes that area residents—who were invited to participate in the management plan—initially supported the park, particularly because of the hope that officials would halt destructive fishing methods, including dynamite fishing, and coral mining. Those same residents, however, soon found themselves excluded from the decision-making process, "which Walley partly attributes to the legacy of colonialism: a centralized and highly bureaucratic state," observed Africa contributor Marja Spierenburg.
As Walley charts the difficulties that arose, she argues against technocratic approaches to community-park relations that work to the detriment of project stakeholders.

The reviewer for Library Bookwatch found that " Rough Waters examines important struggles over access to and use of natural resources. Neumann cited the scholarly trend towards analysis of community conservation initiatives in the Third World. He believed that "Walley's Rough Waters stands out in this important and growing body of work for its empathetic vision, ethnographical and historical depth, and critical insights on globalization and development. In combining a theoretically informed analysis with an engaging narrative style, Walley has established a standard against which future studies of community conservation can be measured.
