Summary

''Incisive, moving, and beautifully written, ''Conservation Is Our Government Now'' is an absolutely exemplary study and a completely absorbing narrative. It is quite simply one of the most sophisticated political ecology books I have read to date.''--Neil Smith, author of ''The Endgame of Globalization'' ''''Conservation Is Our Government Now'' is a timely and significant contribution to contemporary critical scholarship on conservation. More than any other study of which I am aware, it provides an ethnographically rich, nuanced account of the encounter between conservation practitioners and a local community. It is an exemplar of the power of ethnographic writing to reveal other subjectivities and other ways of being.''--J. Peter Brosius, coeditor of ''Communities and Conservation: Histories and Politics of Community-Based Natural Resource Management''
