About this book

Passionate attack on those who labour in the name of conservation: natural resource managers; conservation biologists, environmental economists, park rangers, zoo directors, etc. Turner argues that any managed land ceases to be wild, and that the little wild areas that are left are being destroyed by the very systems designed to conserve it. Ecosystem management is pilloried as `a bit of a sham', and the control of grizzlies and wolves in North America is `at best a travesty'.|
`...a cry in the dark, passionate and provocative, and it must be heard, for it is urgent and insightful and based on broad and thoughtful study as well as a deep experience of the wild - the real wild, not the `abstract' one which eats like a rust at the shining nature of existence' - Petter Matthiessen.
