    In this 512-page monograph, Professor Carruthers sets out to explain in scientific and political contexts the changing philosophies and shifts in focus of the research agendas shaping scientific research in South Africa’s national parks. The focus is thus not on all conservation or conservation science in South Africa, although her discussions of the histories of the country’s 19 national parks include many references to other parks and institutions. Within this framework of national parks, the dominance of the Kruger National Park in the history of national parks science and administration in the country means it occupies a significant amount of the discussion, though the other parks are each considered.
