About this book

This collection undertakes the study of ecopolitical movements across the world from a critical standpoint. Through its use of terms like 'primitiveness' and 'pristine nature', conservation ideology perpetuates a patronising approach towards indigenous peoples alongside the unequal distribution of power and wealth. This careful, anthropological argument should lead us to question our assumptions about environmental protection.
