About this book

With original case studies from Asia, Latin America, Africa, and the South Pacific, this book focuses on topics diverse as ecotourism, bioprospecting, oil extraction, cyanide fishing, timber extraction, and property rights. In an era of market triumphalism, it probes the social and environmental consequences of market-linked nature conservation schemes.
