About this book

We owe a great debt to Max Nicholson. His inspirational leadership has been responsible for a great many of the enduring achievements of conservation since the early 1930s. In this vigorous and forthright book, he reviews the history of the conservation movement since the 1940s, examines its successes and failures and puts forward a programme for the future.
