About this book

Through a series of case studies from around the world, "Capitalism and Conservation" presents a critique of conservation's role as a central driver of global capitalism. The book features innovative new research on case studies on the connections between capitalism and conservation drawn from all over the world. It examines some of our most popular leisure pursuits and consumption habits to uncover the ways they drive and deepen global capitalism, and reveals the increase in intensity and variety of forms of capitalist conservation throughout the world.
