About this book

This book describes the history of IUCN, drawing on a mass of hitherto-unpublished sources and the memories of many who have played a key part in world conservation down the years. But it also sets the `green web' in context, reviewing how it has influenced the whole world environmental movement in a half century that has unquestionably been `The Age of Environment'.


Contents

The springs of conservation; the path to union; the union established; a time for science; the new ark puts to sea; the environmental explosion; a strategy for world conservation; after the strategy; conservation for development; the web extends; power to the members; the balance sheet.
