Professor James Igoe being interviewed by Andrew Murray from the BBC for a new documentary called Unnatural Histories. This three part series examines how encounters with nature in the American West, East Africa, and the Amazon Basin shape the ways in which people in the west imagine nature and their place in nature. Igoe has written about this very question in his book Conservation and Globalization.
