    Caring for the environment, developing rural communities and ensuring the survival of minority cultures are all laudable objectives, but they can often come into conflict, and nowhere more so than in the Scottish Highlands. This acclaimed book examines the dispute between Highlanders, whose own environmental awareness goes back generations, and conservationists rooted in the romantic ideals of the 19th century. Its thought-provoking conclusions have widespread implications for the conservation movement worldwide.
