Description - A History of Nature Conservation in Britain by David Evans

Attitudes to "nature" and the countryside are fickle. The conservation movement has achieved limited success in 100 years of campaigning, yet membership has never been greater. Can conservationists now shake off their insular, disunited and negative image and attain an influence which matches the size of their movement? This volume charts the conservation movement from its beginnings in Victorian coffee houses to its current societies which boast memberships in the millions. A history of the British movement, the oldest in the world, this text offers an insight into the campaign for countryside access and protection - from battles against pesticides, pollution, genetic engineering, farming and forestry, to legislation for the protection of birds, fish stocks, and freedom to walk the mountains.
