About this book

Rosenzweig proposes a new more conciliatory or realistic approach to protecting the environment and biodiversity, which he calls reconciliation ecology. This message may resonate well with the environmental movement and beyond, because it gives readers guidelines to achieve practical, useful improvements in our environment, without the elitist attitudes that many environmentalists have seemed to hold about the way local peoples make use of their environments for their own economic well-being. This book seeks common ground between responsible forces for development and conservationists, and gives a number of inspiring and empowering examples of what good ends can and have been achieved.
