...this book is valuable for the honest and hard-hitting examination it gives community conservation. We learn that it will be difficult to provide meaningful returns from wildlife unless wildlife densities are high; that conservation is costly to communities. ...a must for all who are working on community conservation, scholars and practitioners alike. --Journal of Modern African Studies
...a useful resource for conservation practitioners, academics and students alike. The impressive list of contributors emphasises the combination of both practical field experience and academic rigour that makes this work so valuable...[will] prove to be a seminal publication in this field. Not only does the book come at an opportune time, when an increasingly critical analysis of community conservation in Africa is taking hold, but, through its own genesis (the processes of research, working papers and agenda setting), it has undoubtedly been instrumental in pushing this debate to the fore. --Lucas Bulletin
A timely contribution, which questions what has been achieved and whether intended objectives have been met. ...the cases hold some excellent accounts of conservation projects and convey well the perspectives of people working in this field. ...the detailed and informed tracing of histories of community-orientated conservation projects, drawn together in one volume, will undoubtedly make this a useful text for students conducting research in this field, and also for practitioners wanting to compare experiences in different country contexts. --Journal of International Development
