Read the Introduction to Creating Africas by Knut G Nustad and View Photographs from the Book

 
Creating AfricasCreating Africas: Struggles Over Nature, Conservation and Land by Knut G Nustad investigates the roots of the current conservation boom, demonstrates that it is part of a struggle over definitions of realities, and examines the global effects of this struggle.

In Creating Africas, Nustad discusses the first Unesco World Heritage Site in South Africa, the iSimangaliso (St Lucia) Wetland Park, and argues that any conservation lobby needs to find a way of imagining nature and protection that includes people.

In the introduction to Creating Africas, Nustad reflects on the strange experience of working with conservation and protected areas during the course of writing the book. Read the extract and look at a selection of photographs from Creating Africas.
