Product Description

Review

'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 planet�s 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.

About the Author

Bill Adams is Reader in Conservation and Development at the University of Cambridge, an editor of Decolonizing Nature: strategies for conservation in a post-colonial era (Earthscan, 2002) and the author of Green Development: environment and sustainability in the Third World.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Future Nature was written in the 1990s, and the future it describes is the present. It is an engaging account of Nature Conservation in mainstream politics, policy and legislation up to and during that decade. Those hoping for a book full of vision will probably be disappointed, this is an account of the government's handling of the issue of nature conservation, and of those who helped form policy. Buy it and read it if it is on your reading list. It is accessible, as some books on its subject matter are not. Beware though, it is not nearly as exciting as the title.
