About this book

Based on the most widespread research to date, this book provides a record of the evolving thought and approaches to achieving conservation in Southern Africa. Early chapters deal with traditional 'fines and fences' conservation that occurred in the colonial and early post-independence period, with subsequent sections focussing on the experimentation and innovation that occurred on private and communal land as a result of the break from these traditional methods. The final section deals with more recent innovations in the sector, offering substantial insight for wildlife conservation and management across the continent and the world.
