This four-volume set, edited by a leading expert on nature conservation, brings together in one collection a series of papers from around the world that are fundamental to understanding the social, political, cultural and scientific dimensions of conservation. Each volume is introduced by a new review essay, which both sets the scope for the collection and advances analytical understanding of conservation issues. Volume I covers the historical development of conservation ideas and reviews the diverse contemporary philosophical, ethical, cultural and practical arguments for conservation. Volume II addresses the core issue of conservation: the maintenance of living diversity in the face of human demands on the biosphere. The intention here is not to offer a sourcebook of conservation science, but to include the key texts that have changed the way conservation is understood and practiced. Volume III explores the overlaps and conflicts between conservation and development, and "win-win" solutions to conflicts between the two, including ideas of sustainable development. Volume IV presents work on conservation as an essentially political process, drawing chiefly on social science and, in particular, political ecology and environmental history. There is a substantial set overview and volume introductions by the editor which provide comprehensive treatment of the major themes, historical and current trends, and schools of thought-making it ideal for researchers.
