Author Clarke, a conservation writer, is a co-founder of South Africa's Endangered Wildlife Trust. Writing for general readers, he uncovers the roots of conflicting wildlife polices throughout Africa, revealing that African countries often create wildlife policies to please donor nations rather than to address serious situations. The author explains how this practice has a negative impact on rural Africans, including those living near game reserves in Africa, and even on wildlife. He describes the guerilla war between game reserve guards and armed poachers and hunters, who view national parks and game reserves as places set aside for the entertainment of rich outsiders. He relates harrowing near-escapes and tragedies when humans, including tourists and guides, have been attacked by wild animals. The author advocates compensation for rural people for loss of livestock, crops, and human lives to the wild animals that are protected by government policies. The book is distributed in the US by International Publishers Marketing. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
