Product Description


“Douglas R. Weiner treats conservation––the main topic of this book––as a complex phenomenon molded by government policies, scientific ideas, cultural values, and ideological tenets. He concentrates on the Soviet period from the October Revolution to the consolidation of Stalinist rule in the mid-1930s. . . . Thoroughly documented and firmly integrated, this book is a major contribution to the history of Soviet science, politics, and culture.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Very profound book Sept. 10 2012
By Smotrytskyy - Published on Amazon.com
The book of extraordinary depth. Written competently. Creates a stereoscopic vision of history. This work on the history of ecology as a science. Civil history and political processes have in the book of secondary importance, though they paid to the attention of the subtitle of the Russian edition of the book"Archipelago of freedom". This book must be readed by policy, ecologists, historians and historians of science.
