From the cover:  

To promote the conservation of nature and natural resources has been one of the principle aims behind the New Naturalist Library; this volume thus occupies a central position in the series.  It was completed shortly before his death by sir Dudley Stamp, who was both a member of the editorial board from the beginning and a world authority on the use and abuse of land. 

He first discusses problems peculiar to Britain: a small country with a wide variety of habitats, a large population, an ever growing demand for land and rapidly changing conditions.  He then traces the whole history of the conservancy movement and discusses the problems of managing conservation areas and the conflict between technological progress – in agriculture, forestry, water-mining, industry, housing and land-planning – and the maintenance of wild life and wilderness.  This is followed by lists of all National Parks, reserves and areas of outstanding natural beauty in Britain today, private or state managed and an analysis of work in progress, unsolved problems and future aims.  

In this second edition, the lists and maps have been revised by Mr. M J Woodman of the Nature Conservancy.
