'A valuable addition to the wildlife conservation and management literature.' Journal of International Wildlife Law and Policy 'A detailed and interesting contribution to the debates about the legal and illegal trade in flora and fauna. This volume hangs together very well.' Development and Change 'The book is very readable and provides an overview of the issues involved that is understandable, without resorting to long quotes of regulations and conventions... The examples and case studies allow an appreciation of how complex the problems are and why quick fixes so desired by governments and people alike cannot work.' Animal Welfare, The UFAW Journal 'For those seeking to understand CITES and the chaotic and destructive wildlife markets it seeks to regulate, this book should prove invaluable: one can only hope it will become required reading.' BBC Wildlife 'The volume is well presented and is a thought-provoking paperback to add to the CITES-related collections.' Environmental Conservation
