The passenger pigeon, the great auk, the Tasmanian tiger—the memory of these vanished species haunts the fight against extinction. Seeking to save other creatures from their fate in an age of accelerating biodiversity loss, wildlife advocates have become captivated by a narrative of heroic conservation efforts. A range of technological and policy strategies, from the traditional, such as regulations and refuges, to the novel—the scientific wizardry of genetic engineering and synthetic biology—seemingly promise solutions to the extinction crisis.
In The Fall of the Wild, Ben A. Minteer calls for reflection on the ethical dilemmas of species loss and recovery in an increasingly human-driven world. He asks an unsettling but necessary question: Might our well-meaning efforts to save and restore wildlife pose a threat to the ideal of preserving a world that isn’t completely under the human thumb? Minteer probes the tension between our impulse to do whatever it takes and the risk of pursuing strategies that undermine our broader commitment to the preservation of wildness. From collecting wildlife specimens for museums and the wilderness aspirations of zoos to visions of “assisted colonization” of new habitats and high-tech attempts to revive long-extinct species, he explores the scientific and ethical concerns vexing conservation today. The Fall of the Wild is a nuanced treatment of the deeper moral issues underpinning the quest to save species on the brink of extinction and an accessible intervention in debates over the principles and practice of nature conservation.

From the author of The Soul of an Octopus and bestselling memoir The Good Good Pig, a book that earned Sy Montgomery her status as one of the most celebrated wildlife writers of our time, Spell of the Tiger brings readers to the Sundarbans, a vast tangle of mangrove swamp and tidal delta that lies between India and Bangladesh. It is the only spot on earth where tigers routinely eat people—swimming silently behind small boats at night to drag away fishermen, snatching honey collectors and woodcutters from the forest. But, unlike in other parts of Asia where tigers are rapidly being hunted to extinction, tigers in the Sundarbans are revered. With the skill of a naturalist and the spirit of a mystic, Montgomery reveals the delicate balance of Sundarbans life, explores the mix of worship and fear that offers tigers unique protection there, and unlocks some surprising answers about why people at risk of becoming prey might consider their predator a god.
Hacking. An art, curse, piece of knowledge, illegality, business or an insatiable thirst for power and money? How can a word represent all that and much more? How can a notion become so synonymous to politics and power that they both are afraid of it? All these questions and their responses are inductive enough to have a great number of young people caught up every year in trying to learn the intricacies of the trade and become hackers. Some of them attempt to enter this world attempting to do everything on their own without telling anyone or asking anyone’s advice or guidance. In 99.99% of the cases they either give it up after a few failed attempts, or they do something incredibly wrong that secures for them a place in jail. It is not a recommended option to try something as extreme as hacking without first acquiring some insights about it. This is the purpose behind “Hacking for Beginners: 48 things every hacker must know about how to hack”. To present an informative and educational list of the various issues involved at the beginning of someone’s journey into the world of hacking. However, the most important issue addressed is knowledge. Out of all the above, hacking is all about and requires a lot of knowledge. And it is a most important issue to learn where to look for, how to acquire and what to do with it. Because in the end, a hacker that does what he or she does for the sake of knowledge, is worthy of respect and recognition.
