Wolf populations have recently made a comeback in Northern Europe and North America. These large carnivores can cause predictable conflicts by preying on livestock, and competing with hunters for game. But their arrivals often become deeply embedded in more general societal tensions, which arise alongside processes of social change that put considerable pressure on rural communities and on the rural working class in particular. Based on research and case studies conducted in Norway, Wolf Conflicts discusses various aspects of this complex picture, including conflicts over land use and conservation, and more general patterns of hegemony and resistance in modern societies.

"This is a strong and engaging book. Wolf Conflicts is not a book about wolves per se, but rather an exploration of what human interactions with wolves can tell us about contemporary rural societies." Michael Woods, Aberystwyth University

"Wolf Conflicts is sure to be a useful and fascinating read not only for environmental sociologists but also for conservation scientists and ecologists with an interest in the social aspects of wildlife management, or human-nature relationships in general." Anke Fischer, James Hutton Institute
