In reviewing the first half-century of official involvement in nature conservation, this book offers insight into changing attitudes towards town, countryside and coast, and trends in ecological thinking and practical land-use management. It explains how nature conservation had achieved such stature within the wider environmental movement. The text should be of interest to environmentalists and those with a professional, academic leisure interest in the outdoors.
