Caring for the environment, developing rural communities and ensuring the survival of minority cultures are all laudable objectives, but they can meet with opposition. In this influential study, Hunter examines - and attempts to reconcile - the dispute between Scottish Highlanders, whose own environmental awareness goes back generations, and environmentalists often inspired by Romantic ideals rather than Highland realities. First published in 1994; reissued with a new preface by the author and a foreword by Alastair McIntosh.
