Louis S. Warren:
The Hunter's Game: Poachers and Conservationists in Twentieth-Century America (Yale Historical Publications Series) - Taschenbuch

ISBN: 0300080867

[SR: 1166198], Paperback, [EAN: 9780300080865], Yale University Press, Yale University Press, Book, [PU: Yale University Press], Yale University Press, This provocative book takes a new look at the angry struggles between American conservationists and local hunters since the rise of wildlife conservation at the end of the 1800s. From Italian immigrants in Pennsylvania, to rural settlers and Indians in New Mexico, to Blackfeet in Montana, local hunters' traditions of using wildlife have clashed with conservationist ideas of "proper" hunting for over a century. Louis Warren contends that these conflicts arose from deep social divisions and that the bitter history of conservation offers a new narrative for the history of the American West. At the heart of western-and American-history, Warren argues, is the transformation of many local resources, like wildlife, into "public goods," or "national commons." The Hunter's Game reveals that early wildlife conservation was driven not by heroic idealism, but by the interests of recreational hunters and the tourist industry. As American wildlife populations declined at the end of the nineteenth century, elite, urban sportsmen began to lobby for game laws that would restrict the customary hunting practices of immigrants, Indians, and other local hunters. Not surprisingly, poor subsistence and market hunters resisted, sometimes violently. Dramatic shifts in deer and elk populations-the result of complex environmental dynamics-further complicated the struggles. Warren concludes that the history of wildlife conservation sheds much light on the tensions between local and national priorities that pervade twentieth-century American culture., Ask any resident of a rural area about hunting season in their community and you're sure to get their favorite stories: the malamute that was mistaken for a wolf and shot by that fellow from New York, or the guy driving back to Boston with a goat strapped to his fender, convinced he'd bagged a deer. The tensions and prejudices between country and city are never more evident than during hunting season, and in The Hunter's Game, Louis S. Warren provides an interesting historical perspective to the subject. According to Warren, until the turn of the century, hunting was unregulated, and for many working-class people it was a way to supplement their family's diet. Then the government intervened, designating wildlife as a community resource that had to be managed, and a kind of war broke out between mostly immigrant communities and the wildlife officers sent to enforce new regulations. What makes The Hunter's Game more than just an interesting anecdote about a historical event is Warren's persuasive argument that hunter's rights and the government's ability to regulate them is emblematic of the sometimes uneasy relationship between individuals and their government. Nearly 100 years later, balancing the individual's rights with the greater good of society is still a contentious issue on many fronts, and the story Louis S. Warren tells is more relevant than ever., 4853, United States, 4867, African Americans, 4868, Civil War, 4869, Colonial Period, 6343225011, Immigrants, 4871, Revolution & Founding, 14278871, State & Local, 4808, Americas, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13735, Environmental, 226545, Groundwater & Flood Control, 16244651, Insecticides & Pesticides, 52192011, Pollution, 226548, Waste Management, 226549, Water Quality & Treatment, 227541, Civil & Environmental, 173515, Engineering, 173507, Engineering & Transportation, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13509, Wildlife, 13474, Animals, 13469, Biological Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 226688, Biology, 13524, Cell Biology, 226689, Developmental Biology, 226690, Entomology, 13537, Marine Biology, 172406, Microbiology, 13540, Molecular Biology, 227277, Biostatistics, 13469, Biological Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13598, Environmental Science, 13592, Earth Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 290062, Conservation, 52215011, Energy, 14452, Nature & Ecology, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 290441, Environmentalism, 14459, Environment, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 491422, United States, 468230, History, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 684290011, Environmental Studies, 468216, Science & Mathematics, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books

This provocative book blends social and environmental history to offer a new look at the angry struggles between American wildlife conservationists and local hunters since the late nineteenth century."Warren argues persuasively that hunting regulations (at the turn of the century) caused enduring political restiveness because they represented 'one of the most startling examples of how the nation acquired power over the most intimate of relationships between people and nature.'" -- Keith Schneider, New York Times Book Review
