Item description for Mad About Wildlife: Looking At Social Conflict Over Wildlife (Human-Animal Studies) by Ann Herda-Rapp...
This edited volume documents the presence and types of Nature discourse that emerge during conflicts between people over wildlife. This collection of qualitative case studies demonstrates how social groups create opposing symbolic meanings of Nature and highlights the way in which the successful imposition of those meanings affects wildlife, people generally, and management professionals. Together, the chapters illustrate the significant, untapped utility of constructionist approaches for understanding social conflict over wildlife issues and for managing natural resources in a way that acknowledges and incorporates different definitions of nature.
Readership: Individuals interested in wildlife protection and management, as well as social controversy over nature and environmental policy.
