(p.199) CHAPTER 12 History, Nature and Culture in British Nature Conservation*
Exploring Environmental History

T. C. Smout

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines what actually happens in British conservation policy to determine how it uses, or fails to use, history, and how its confused attitude to history arises from a particular scientific view of the relationship between nature and humankind. It proposes that future nature has to arrive from acknowledgement of past culture.

Keywords:   environmental conservation, nature, British conservation policy
