Dowie's Bombshell of a Book

Whoa, this headline should snap a few necks back:

Is modern conservation linked with ethnic cleansing?

It’s a link to this article by Mark Dowie, which is based on his new book, Conservation Refugees: The Hundred-Year Conflict Between Conservation and Native Peoples.

Anyone who knows Mark Dowie (and is familiar with his last few books) can expect the latest to ring a few alarm bells in the conservation community (and prompt some top environmental chiefs to reach for their tums).

The last time I talked with Mark he was gasping at the book’s finish line. I can’t wait to read it. And Mark, when Val and I come calling in Point Reyes this summer, where you gonna put the two little kids trailing behind us? You didn’t have to worry about that the last time we visited.
