Seidensticker, J., S. Christie, and P. Jackson, eds. 1999. Riding the Tiger: Tiger Conservation in Human-dominated Landscapes. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge. Translated into Russian and Indonesian.

From John Gittleman writing in Animal Conservation: “The modern synthesis of conservation biology in terms of science, culture, economics and politics are effectively conveyed in Riding the Tiger, and should serve as a clear example of how and why to argue for a single species effort in the face of broad issues in conservation.”

From Joel Berger writing in Conservation Biology “Riding the Tiger is bold, creative and comprehensive. It fits no prior model. Riding the Tiger is the best 1990s single-species account I have read.”
