Conflicts about wildlife are usually portrayed and understood as resulting from the negative impacts of wildlife on human livelihoods or property. However, a greater depth of analysis reveals that many instances of human-wildlife conflict are often better understood as people-people conflict, wherein there is a clash of values between different human groups. Understanding Conflicts About Wildlife unites academics and practitioners from across the globe to develop a holistic view of these interactions. It considers the political and social dimensions of 'human-wildlife conflicts' alongside effective methodological approaches, and will be of value to academics, conservationists and policy makers.

"This timely volume is a must read for students, academics, researchers, and conservation practitioners and wildlife managers. It not only aims to raise awareness of the human-human conflict dimensions that often underlie or aggravate people-wildlife co-existence, but provides readers with useful approaches in addressing these." Tatyana Humle, University of Kent

"This book is excellent and essential reading for anyone interested in human-wildlife coexistence, including researchers at all levels, conservation professionals, policy makers and funders. The editors and authors of this volume advocate convincingly for a radical change in measures taken to understand human-wildlife interactions, calling for a biosocial approach, and the integration of social and natural sciences." Joanna M. Setchell, Durham University
