Abstract

Global Governance 20 (2014), 163–168 BOOK REVIEWS Transforming the Frontier: Peace Parks and the Politics of Neoliberal Conservation in Southern Africa. By Bram Büscher. Durham: Duke Univer- sity Press, 2013. Like a skilled jurist, Bram Büscher pieces together a compelling argument about the corrupting influences of neoliberalism in environmental policy by using the Maloti-Drakensberg Transfrontier Conservation and Development Project as a case study. While the discussions are far too nuanced to call this book a primer on neoliberalism and the environment, it should be read as a piece of critical analysis of neoliberalism on both the environmental and development communities rather than as a book on conservation. Büscher builds an analytic framework that draws “distinction between neoliberalism as a mode of political conduct and a mode of devolved gover- nance” (p. 220). In doing so, he focuses on three key elements—consensus building, antipolitics, and marketing. Using an ethnographic approach that combines political ecology with international relations to delve into these ele- ments, Büscher makes insightful arguments to show how governance struc- ture emerges and why it evolves as it does.
