Endangered Species Recovery presents case studies of prominent species recovery programs in an attempt to explore and analyze their successes, failures, and problems, and to begin to find ways of improving the process. It is the first effort to engage social scientists as well as biologists in a wide-ranging analysis and discussion of endangered species conservation, and provides valuable insight into the policy and implementation framework of species recovery programs. The book features a unique integration of case studies with theory, and provides sound, practical ideas for improving endangered species policy implementation.

"Coexisting with Large Carnivores provides valuable insights and ideas for reaching common-interest solutions to the highly emotional debate over management of large carnivores. This book is required reading for anyone who has a stake in the management of wolves, grizzly bears, or mountain lions." --Kim Barber "Conservation is much more complicated than just getting the science right. Coexisting with Large Carnivores offers a compelling approach for moving forward by harvesting lessons from the past and articulating clear alternatives for the future. This is a must-read for anyone trying to make conservation gains in the 21st century." --Mike Gibeau "While conservationists have finally twigged to the truth that carnivore conservation is more about understanding human values and behaviors than it is about the science of carnivores, most remain terminally perplexed when it comes to actually grappling with the 'human' side of the equation. In Coexisting with Large Carnivores, Tim Clark and his colleagues provide a urgently needed map to the tangled, fiercely contested sociopolitical topography of carnivore policy and management. In itself, this is of great value, but the authors go even further by providing a set of robust tools - contextual problem-orientation, practice-based conservation, and collaborative process - to help people of good will find common ground and forge democratic solutions to the tough problems that challenge us all." --Bart Robinson
