"The vital position of Africans in effective conservation has not
been well described for the Western public, and "The Myth of Wild
Africa takes an important step in redressing this lack of
understanding. For anyone interested in the realities of
conservation, it is a book well worth reading."--Dr. Amy Vedder,
Biodiversity Program Coordinator, Wildlife Conservation Society
"A thoughtful and important examination of . . . the fatal
fallacies of old-style conservation. The relationship between
wildlife and people in Africa is as old as our species itself. The
future of both must be taken into account together. Required
reading for anyone who has ever cared about one or the
other."--Thomas E. Lovejoy, Assistant Secretary for External
Affairs, Smithsonian Institution
"I've never read any single other volume that has had as much
impact on the problems, politics, and policies--and possible
solution--of conservation in Africa."--Gary C. Clarke, Director
Emeritus, Topeka, Kansas Zoological Park
