Wolf Conflicts : A Sociological Study, Hardback Book


Wolf populations have recently made a comeback in Northern Europe and North America.

These large carnivores can cause predictable conflicts by preying on livestock, and competing with hunters for game.

But their arrivals often become deeply embedded in more general societal tensions, which arise alongside processes of social change that put considerable pressure on rural communities and on the rural working class in particular.

Based on research and case studies conducted in Norway, Wolf Conflicts discusses various aspects of this complex picture, including conflicts over land use and conservation, and more general patterns of hegemony and resistance in modern societies.
