The book examines current biodiversity conservation practices in South and Southeast Asia as they relate to indigenous peoples' rights. The 12 case studies from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines are based on presentations made at a conference in Malaysia, in 1998. Each of the contributions is followed by a summary of the main issues addressed during the subsequent discussions, and the book ends with three articles analysing the state-of-affairs of biodiversity conservation in the region in light of the 'new approach' taken by the conservation organisations. Conclusions and recommendations are made. The book forms a valuable contribution to the discussion of indigenous peoples' and protected areas.
