9780521341998: Conservation in Africa: Peoples, Policies and Practice

A new, interdisciplinary look at the practices and policies of conservation in Africa is presented in this volume. For the first time social scientists, anthropologists, and historians have been brought together with biologists, in order to illuminate previously neglected yet critically important social aspects of conservation thinking. The book is introduced by an overview of African conservation in the past, present, and future. There are sixteen papers on a wide range of topics from wildlife management to soil conservation, and from the Cape in the nineteenth century to Ethiopia in the 1980s. These collectively show that conservation must form an integral part of future policies for human development. To date, conservation has been largely the domain of the biologist, but the current ecological crisis in Africa and the failure of orthodox conservation policies demand a radical new appraisal of conventional practices. This, therefore, is essential reading for all those concerned about people and conservation in Africa.

About the Author:

DAVID ANDERSON was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1943 and raised there. At age seventeen, he showed his photographic work to Alfred Einsenstaedt at Life Magazine, who encouraged him to begin his photographic career at the New York Daily News, which he did. After serving the U.S. Army as a cameraman, including duty in Vietnam, from 1969 to 1983 he was a cinematographer based in New York City who specialized in commercials and documentaries. He also photographed two independent films directed by artist Nancy Graves, including Isy Boukir (1971), which was purchased for the collection of films at the Museum of Modern Art. Since 1983 he has worked as an architectural photographer and is represented by the Yancey Richardson Gallery, of New York City. His photographs are in numerous public and corporate collections, including American Airlines, AT&T, the Brooklyn Museum, the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, Citicorp, Deutsche Bank, Equitable Life Assurance Society, the Museum of the City of New York, and the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, among others. After living in New York City for fifty years, Mr. Anderson moved in 2010 to the Hudson River valley of New York. His website is www.davidvanderson.com.

Descripción Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 1989. Hard Cover. Estado de conservación: Fine. First Edition. This book provides a new inter-disciplinary look at the practice and policies of conservation in Africa. Bringing together social scientists, anthropologists and historians with biologists for the first time, the book sheds some light on the previously neglected but critically important social aspects of conservation thinking. To date conservation has been very much the domain of the biologist, but the current ecological crisis in Africa and the failure of orthodox conservation policies demand a radical new appraisal of conventional practices. This new approach to conservation, the book argues, cannot deal simply with the survival of species and habitats, for the future of African wildlife is intimately tied to the future of African rural communities. Conservation must form an integral part of future policies for human development. The book emphasises this urgent need for a complementary rather than a competitive approach. It covers a wide range of topics important to this new approach, from wildlife management to soil conservation and from the Cape in the nineteenth century to Ethiopia in the 1980s. It is essential reading for all those concerned about people and conservation in Africa.
