'This excellent volume condenses decaded of high-quality research into who the relevant stakeholders are, how they interact with each other, and how their value systems, mandates and actions influence the legitimacy and outcomes of carnivore management policies...This book is neither dogmatic nor does it contain unnecessary jargon, making it an accessible resource that provides generous practical guidance...The book covers a lot of ground and it provides a valuable resource for those involved in, or unfamiliar with, the human dimensions of large carnivore conservation and management.' - Florian J.
