This book offers a comparative analysis of organizations and networks involved in nature protection in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden, the UK and the USA. It traces their development from their origins, more than a century ago, to the present day. Throughout this period, nature protection has remained an enduring concern to civil society and continues to be a major stream within environmentalism. However, strategies, public support, and political success vary greatly among the countries studied. Combining rich empirical evidence and theoretical analysis, the book sheds light on the important challenges nature protection faces today.
'By examining the evolution, role, and influence of nature protection organizations and networks in eight European countries and the United States, this book addresses a long-standing gap in comparative research on Western Environmentalism. It will appeal to all scholars and students with an interest in environmentalism, nature protection, and social movement studies.'- Lars H. Gulbrandsen, the Fridtjof Nansen Institute, Norway
