Winner of The Wildlife Society's 2009 Wildlife Publication Award for outstanding edited book
 
As human populations around the world continue to expand, reconciling nature conservation with human needs and aspirations is imperative. The emergence in recent decades of the academic field of human dimensions of fish and wildlife management is a proactive response to this complex problem.
 
Wildlife and Society brings together leading researchers in the range of specialties that are relevant to the study of human dimensions of fish and wildlife work around the globe to provide theoretical and historical context as well as a demonstration of tools, methodologies, and idea-sharing for practical implementation and integration of practices.
 
Chapters document the progress on key issues and offer a multifaceted presentation of this truly interdisciplinary field. The book
 
· presents an overview of the changing culture of fish and wildlife management;
· considers social factors creating change in fish and wildlife conservation;
· explores how to build the social component into the philosophy of wildlife management;
· discusses legal and institutional factors;
· examines social perspectives on contemporary fish and wildlife management issues.
 
Wildlife and Society is uniquely comprehensive in its approach to presenting the past, present, and future of human dimensions of fish and wildlife research and application. It offers perspectives from a wide variety of academic disciplines as well as presenting the views of practitioners from the United States, Europe, Africa, and Latin America. It is an important new reference for anyone concerned with fish and wildlife management or environmental conservation and protection.
