MEDIA REVIEWS
"Informative and enlightening... A must read for anyone who cares about the environment and seeks a better understanding of what can be done." --OASis
..."the book is valuable for its excellent presentation of the transnational and interdependent nature of biodiversity protection, the creative framework for looking at NGOs, and the wealth of information about an underresearched, yet crucially important, topic."--Choice
"Michael Gunter's Building the Next Ark: How NGOs Work to Protect Biodiversity is a well-presented volume that represents a substantial and timely contribution to the literatures on international organizations, political sociology, and environmental studies. Given the quality of the critical thinking exercise undertaken by Gunter, Building the Next Ark will be useful in may ways to a variety of readers."--International Studies Review
"Building the Next Ark is a valuable resource for anyone working with or in an NGO. However, it may be even more valuable for someone without a political or science or economics background. The book is readable and enjoyable. Just as the NASA photo of Earth seen from space shifted our perspective, this book offers a global perspective of the work of NGOs, shifting our vision of them dramatically. Most importantly, it offered a 'rainbow of hope' that NGOs proved ways to connect, collaborate, and to rise above the petty nation-state politics, promoting participatory democracy and protecting biodiversity in the process."--North American Association for Environmental Education
