Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the first decades of the 20th century, conservationists saw a need for government intervention to protect threatened animals. Because many species migrated across international boundaries, international conservation agreements evolved. Kurkpatrick Dorsey describes each of these early treaties, showing how they offer lessons for future conservation efforts. Photos.

Book News Annotation:

Dorsey (history, U. of New Hampshire) examines the first three comprehensive wildlife conservation treaties in history, all between the US and Canada: the Inland Fisheries Treaty of 1908, the North Pacific Fur Seal Convention of 1911, and the Migratory Bird Treaty of 1916. He argues that the pacts were adopted only after conservationists learned to marshal scientific evidence, public sentiment, and economic incentives to their campaigns. Modern environmentalists, he says, could learn from their successes. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
