[EmergingEthnoNetwork] Fwd: Sacred Natural Sites - Review Copies Available

Dear colleague,

Earthscan is pleased to announce that review copies are now available for the following new books which explore issues in conservation and biodiversity. If you are a book review editor and would like a press copy of any of the books, please email me at with the details of your publication and a rough timescale for review.

Sacred Natural Sites
Conserving Nature and Culture
Edited by Bas Verschuuren, Robert Wild, Jeffrey McNeely and Gonzalo Oviedo

This book illustrates that sacred natural sites – the world's oldest protected places – although often under threat, exist within and outside formally recognised protected areas and heritage sites. They may well be some of the last strongholds for building resilient networks of connected landscapes as well as forming important nodes for maintaining a dynamic cultural fabric in the face of global change. The diverse authors bridge the gap between approaches to the conservation of cultural and biological diversity by taking into account cultural and spiritual values together with the socio-economic interests of the custodian communities and other relevant stakeholders.


You also may be interested in other books we have published recently on the relationship between natural resources and cultural values. Nature's Spectacle considers the place of national parks, their character and significance, and the larger context in which they developed.
Nature and Culture investigates the bridges linking biological and cultural diversity and shows that any hope for saving biological diversity is predicated on an effort to appreciate and protect cultural diversity.


Please email to request a review copy of either book. Also, if you are keen to receive sample spreads and the jacket images to publish alongside a review or on a website do let me know. To unsubscribe from this mailing list, click here.
