Jamie Lorimer is associate professor of geography and the environment at Oxford University.
"Jamie Lorimer has written a very provocative and relevant book about the future of conservation."-CHOICE "An enlightening and very readable introduction to some key concepts."-Human Geography "An important book for anyone engaged in conservation."-Quarterly Review of Biology "Against all-too-human accounts of the Anthropocene, Jamie Lorimer envisions a dynamic cosmopolitics for wildlife. He demonstrates how species `conservation' can somehow proceed as neither mastery nor naturalism but, instead, as necessary experiments in interspecies responsibility."-Stacy Alaimo, author of Bodily Natures: Science, Environment, and the Material Self
