Show Summary Details


This chapter examines what actually happens in British conservation policy to determine how it uses, or fails to use, history, and how its confused attitude to history arises from a particular scientific view of the relationship between nature and humankind. It proposes that future nature has to arrive from acknowledgement of past culture.
