5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and thought provoking 3 Jan 2012
This book updates and draws together many ECOS articles from the past 10 years which have addressed the exciting and challenging concept of rewilding in the UK. The articles cover pioneering projects such as Knepp in Sussex, Alladale, Glen Affric and Carrifran in Scotland, and Ennerdale in Cumbria, as well as the East of England Fens and the Essex coast. A large section looks at the various candidate species for reintroduction in the UK including wild boar, beaver, lynx, wolf, and the actuality of escaped wild boar and vagrant exotic cats, and lessons from the projects involving Great Bustards, cranes and sea eagles. These pieces look at the tactical debates surrounding the different species and consider the lessons from early pilots and research related to the respective species.

The coverage is multi-discplinary and much of the analysis is deep and reflective, but often expressed frankly. There are debates on the implications of rewilding and reintroductions for people and other land uses, and consideration on how the rewilding debate is influencing mainstream wildlife conservation activity, where the new interest in landscape-scale conservation is often a step towards selective aspects of rewilding. There is also much treatment of the various prejudices at work when people label a species alien or native.

The 490 pages are a marker on the main debates and controversies on the topics being pursued within the brand of Rewilding. The articles are mostly written by 'thinking practitioners' and together they illustrate the diverese views and approaches. They indicate that the topic remains radical for those who take a more pure and orthodox view of natural nature here and now in Britain. Those who view nature in a more dynamic sense and who consider wildlife's connections to the human condition will find much to embrace in this rich book.
