About this book

Explains such issues as oil spills, lax NAFTA driven ecological standards, endangered indigenous cultures and the destruction of the rainforests.

Fast-paced, complex, challenging and important. Their analysis of the broad scale of loss and biological decline occurring in the Amazon basin, and the factors driving it, are as stunning as any I've read..
