About the Author

Lisa Gezon received her Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Michigan, and is currently Chair and Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of West Georgia. She has ongoing research projects in Madagascar and in the Georgia Piedmont on the politics of environmental resource management, and continues her research interests in issues of political ecology in the United States and abroad.


[This] book is an important contribution to Malagasy studies and the dynamics of natural resource management, particularly in relation to conservation. The study is a must-read for everyone interested in these issues, precisely because it offers ethnography and anaylsis which lay bare the intrinsic foundations of the local politics dealt with and engaged in by international conservation agencies. * Journal Of The Royal Anthropological Institute, December 2008 *
