Inhaltsangabe: This book is the first to describe the history of geoconservation. It draws on experience from the UK, Europe and further afield, to explore topics including: what is geoconservation; where, when and how did it start; who was responsible; and how has it differed across the world? Geological and geomorphological features, processes, sites and specimens, provide a resource of immense scientific and educational importance. They also form the foundation for the varied and spectacular landscapes that help define national and local identity as well as many of the great tourism destinations. Mankind's activities, including contributing to enhanced climate change, pose many threats to this resource: the importance of safeguarding and managing it for future generations is now widely accepted as part of sustainable development. Geoconservation is an established and growing activity across the world, with more participants and a greater profile than ever before. This volume highlights a history of challenges, set-backs, successes and visionary individuals and provides a sound basis for taking geoconservation into the future.

Review: This book is primarily a look backwards at the development of geoconservation, but it does demonstrate the need to plan for sustainable development in the future; the balance between geoconservation and geo-exploitation will need to be addressed. Definitely a book worth reading. --Review by: Lesley Laws BSc(hons) Open (Geoscience) Featured in OUGS Vol 31 1-2 2010
