About this book

Presents an ethnographic examination of the social effects of conservation and development efforts in Papua New Guinea. This book focuses on the area that was the site of a biodiversity conservation project. It demonstrates the capacity of ethnography to illuminate the relationship between trans-national processes and individual lives.

Incisive, moving, and beautifully written, Conservation Is Our Government Now" is an absolutely exemplary study and a completely absorbing narrative. It is quite simply one of the most sophisticated political ecology books I have read to date."--Neil Smith, author of "The Endgame of Globalization"
