About this book

In this book, the author investigates the world of nature conservation, arguing that the West's attitude to endangered wildlife is shallow, self-contradictory and ultimately very damaging.

Analysing the workings of the black-market wildlife industry, she points out that illegal trading is often the direct result of Western consumer desires, from coltan for cellular phones to exotic meats sold to Londoners. She looks at the role of ecotourism, showing how Western travellers contribute - often unwittingly - to the destruction of natural environments.

Most strikingly, it is argued that the imperatives of Western-style conservation often result in serious injustice to local people, who are branded as problems and subject to severe restrictions on their way of life and even extrajudicial killings.
