"Surely this book must be considered essential reading for all academics, practitioners and policy makers who are working in transboundary areas in the region, and particularly within developing countries of the world. It is to be hoped that it will influence changes in the way that practitioners work on TFCAs, and refocus their efforts to devise policy and initiatives that drive more rapid and sustainable improvements to the livelihoods of people who live there, while also promoting biodiversity conservation in expansive conservation areas." - Dr Anna Spenceley, IUCN "The main strength of Transfrontier Conservation Areas lies in its detailed and thorough analysis of the complexities facing TFCA planners in edge environments, which to date have received relatively little research attention." - Biological Conservation, James Bennett, Coventry University "A search on Amazon.com will present you with five recent books on Transfrontier Conservation. This volume, however, deserves to be particularly recommended as a significant analysis of development policy. It confronts the ideology of Transfrontier Conservation in Southern Africa systematically with the actual realities on the ground and finds that these do not fit. In that respect, it is reminiscent of Ferguson's Anti Politics Machine." - Jan Kees van Donge, University of Papua New Guinea , European Journal of Development Research
