About this book

Describes the development of the British nature conservation movement, from its roots in art, agriculture and aesthetics in the 16th century to the present day. The author questions governmental concern for the environment, and the efficacy of the established, larger conservation bodies and argues that the movement must draw itself together in order to address current problems.
