About This Book

This volume presents the results of an international, multi-year, collaborative project that focused on Southeast Asia and was designed to transcend orthodox thinking about environmental conservation. In documenting the way that many societies conserve resources in the course of everyday activities, the contributions to this volume question formal, state-led conservation interventions. The planned character of such interventions reintroduces and is often doomed by the vision of a dichotomy between society and environment. The contributions to this volume show how the views of Northern and Southern scholars, of natural scientists and social scientists, can converge on many of these issues but still differ.
