Praise

“This book is a remarkable intellectual and political achievement, demonstrating nothing less than how to organize and practice revolutionary conservation beyond the Anthropocene, but within the ruins of uneven socio-ecological capitalist development. A razor-sharp analysis of conservation and how to politicize its futures.”
—Erik Swyngedouw, University of Manchester

“In our era of unprecedented conservation needs and challenges, this hard-hitting, clear-sighted book offers a radical and timely way forward. Two eminent and committed political ecologists cut a path through old and new conservation debates and dichotomies—people vs. nature, capitalism vs. post-capitalism—to offer a new paradigm and politics around conviviality. Vital reading, and a vital manifesto for all concerned with how people and non-human natures can live well together.”
—Professor Melissa Leach, Director, Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex

“Buscher and Fletcher significantly advance radical alternatives to mainstream conservation, especially by locating them within the need for systemic alternatives to capitalism (and hopefully by implication, though not explicitly stated, patriarchy). Their notion of convivial conservation, building on innovative traditions that have broken away from dominant notions of progress and develop-ment, helps envisage an end to the human domination of the earth, so desperately needed.”
—Ashish Kothari, co-author with A. Shrivastava of Churning the Earth: The Making of Global India

“This book is an remarkable intellectual and political achievement, demonstrating nothing less than how to organize and practice revolutionary conservation beyond the Anthropocene, but within the ruins of uneven socio-ecological capitalist development. A razor-sharp analysis of conservation and how to politicize its futures.”
—Erik Swyngedouw

“The debate over the conservation of creation is necessarily deep and contentious—this new approach deserves a careful reading from everyone who cares about human and more-than-human nature!”
—Bill McKibben
