Description

Models of Nature studies the early and turbulent years of the Soviet conservation movement from the October Revolution to the mid-1930s—Lenin’s rule to the rise of Stalin. This new edition includes an afterword by the author that reflects upon the study's impact and discusses advances in the field since the book was first published.


Praise For Models Of Nature: Ecology, Conservation, and Cultural Revolution in Soviet Russia (Russian and East European Studies)

“Douglas R. Weiner treats conservation––the main topic of this book––as a complex phenomenon molded by government policies, scientific ideas, cultural values, and ideological tenets. He concentrates on the Soviet period from the October Revolution to the consolidation of Stalinist rule in the mid-1930s. . . . Thoroughly documented and firmly integrated, this book is a major contribution to the history of Soviet science, politics, and culture.”
--American Historical Review
