Conserving Cultures
Harry Redner
Price: $ 24.95

As the forests are felled, cultures are destroyed. In our technological civilization, the forces of globalization are a threat to both nature and culture. The many and varied cultures of the world are beset by the homogenizing impact of the global media, which represents the triumph of technics. The fate can only be averted by a concerted effort at culture conservation. Nature and culture must be protected to preserve a humanly habitable world. Conserving Cultures is the first book to link nature and culture conservation. The threat to nature is now well understood, how it relates to cultures is not. This book both describes and analyzes theoretically the danger to culture and proposes practical remedial measures.

Harry Redner was formerly an endowed professor at Darmstadt University in Germany, and a reader at Monash University in Australia.
