An Environmental History Of The Uk Defence Estate 1945 To The Present

This book brings to attention the history of places that have traditionally remained under-the-radar in discussions of war and the environment, through site-based studies of five training areas in southwest England and Wales: Salisbury Plain, Lulworth, Dartmoor, Sennybridge and Castlemartin. At these sites, the big events of the twentieth century are written into landscapes that absorb their impact and reflect change in intriguing ways. Here, however, environment is more than a canvas on which historical forces play out; it has an agency of its own, as the depiction of the surprising nature and robust habitats of the training areas recognises. An Environmental History of the UK Defence Estate, 1945 to the Present critically examines the gradual 'greening' of the MoD as it developed policies of military environmentalism. It includes the histories of the ghost-villages created by forced evictions, and charts the rise and fall of anti-military protest movements. It depicts heated confrontations, mass trespasses, and demands for public access alongside conservation work and training activities, situating the human histories of these sites within their environmental history, and taking the reader behind the barbed wire in the first study of its kind.

After bivvying under boulders and camping in caves on her last tent-bound adventure, she’s decided to hit the UK’s wild places once again but this time take it further.

This book is as close to true wilderness as we may ever find ourselves able to come. The World's Wild Places is the culmination of ten years spent by one man waiting for dawn or dusk to spread its wings across impossibly remote lands at the furthest extremes of the Earth. Few match the power of Colin Prior's panoramic photography, and in this, his most ambitious collection of work and in some ways the most private, he presents an unforgettable record of the fast disappearing wild places of the world. The searing sands of the Namib, the oxygen-starved Atacama desert, the gargantuan splendour of Monument Valley, the remote fastness of Torres del Paine, the heart-stopping Karakoram, the ethereal beauty of Norway's Lofoten Islands - all the great wild places of the Earth are captured, for the first time, in this unique volume. For the past decade, Scottish photographer Colin Prior has journeyed more than a million miles seeking out the world's last wild places. His photography has won numerous awards and his previous books include Highland Wilderness, Scotland: The Wild Places and Living Tribes.
