View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Nature conservation strategies have accomplished an enormous amount over the last 50 years but traditional approaches are failing to keep pace with new threats to wildlife and landscape and changes in the relationship of society and nature. This text offers a fundamental reassessment of conservation. In what is both a personal account and a broader practical vision, it argues that it is no longer a matter of parks and reserves, but conservation must now be central to our relationship with nature, and embrace the whole countryside. New thinking about biodiversity and sustainability offer opportunities to forge new and effective links between our lives and the natural world, and the book explores their ecological, economic and cultural significance. Conservation has the potential to create a new space for nature, in the landscape, and in our lives and imaginations.

'Adams wants us to begin thinking about nature in the city and of the city as part of nature. Our suburbs no longer separate city from the countryside. This is what we have left. Because half of the planets six billion people now live in cities, we need to focus on making the city livable. Bringing nature into it may be crucial.' Review of Radical Political Economics 'Well documented and beautifully written, there are lessons to be learned from this well-told story.' Marilyn K. Alaimo, garden writer and library volunteer, Chicago Botanic Garden. Current Books on Gardening and Botany, April 2004.
