Predatory Bureaucracy: The Extermination of Wolves and the Transformation of the West Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael Robinson tracks America's wolves and attitudes toward predators through U.S. history, detailing the evolution of federal wildlife-extermination programs.

Synopsis:

Predatory Bureaucracy is the definitive history of America's wolves and our policies toward predators. Tracking wolves from the days of the conquistadors to the present, author Michael Robinson shows that their story merges with that of the U.S. Bureau of Biological Survey. This federal agency was chartered to research insects and birds but - because of various pressures - morphed into a political powerhouse dedicated to killing wolves and other wildlife.

About the Author

Michael J. Robinson is carnivore conservation coordinator for the Center for Biological Diversity. He lives in New Mexico.
