Media reviews

'The reader who instantly tenses at the words 'conference volume' can be reassured; all the papers are data-rich, detailed, well thought out, and balanced. In fact, rarely has a book about the anthropology of environmental management packed more data into so little space.' - The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

'This book affords an accessible and broad perspective on wildlife in Asia, going well beyond just a single species of interest...At a time when much of the world is taking a fresh look toward Asia, this book offers varied perspectives on wildlife in Asian countries.' - Anthrozoos
