9780295989990: Wild Sardinia: Indigeneity and the Global Dreamtimes of Environmentalism

Shared concern for nature can be a way of transcending national, ethnic, religious, and cultural boundaries, yet conservation efforts often pit the interests of historically rooted or indigenous people against the state and international environmental organizations, eroding local autonomy while 'saving' rural land for animals and tourists. "Wild Sardinia's" examination of the cultural politics around nature conservation and the traditional Commons on an Italian island illustrates the complexities of environmental stewardship. Long known as the home of fiercely independent shepherds (often typecast as rustics, bandits, or eco-vandals), as well as wild mouflon sheep, magnificent eagles, and rare old oak forests, the town of Orgosolo has for several decades received notoriety through local opposition to Gennargentu National Park. Interweaving rich ethnographic description of highland central Sardinia with analysis grounded in political ecology and reflexive cultural critique, "Wild Sardinia" illuminates the ambivalent and open-ended meanings of many Sardinians' acts and memories of 'resistance' to environmental projects. This groundbreaking case study of the tension between living cultural landscapes and the emerging ecological imaginaries envisioned through policy discourses and new media - the 'global dreamtimes of environmentalism' - has relevance far beyond its Mediterranean locale. Tracey Heatherington is associate professor of anthropology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

It is superbly written, eloquently argued, and a pleasure to read. -Paige West, Barnard College, Columbia University, and American Museum of Natural History--A fine contribution to the anthropology of the Mediterranean and to environmental anthropology, it also makes a useful contribution to the anthropology of resistance and political activism, successfully nuancing an account of resistance, to point out the complexities of gender, religious, and class identities as they feed into activism. -- -Jon P.
