320 pages, 20 b/w photos, 8 maps
Collection of essays offering important new reflections on the multiple images of and rhetoric surrounding the rain forest. Contributors provide case studies from Latin America, Asia, and Africa. They point the way toward a search for a rain forest that is both a natural entity and a social history, an inhabited place and a shifting set of ideas.
At this stage, anyone concerned with forest management would do well to read this book-it is an excellent demonstration of the value of a consciously-managed process of interdisciplinary dialogue.--Elery Hamilton-Smith, Electronic Green Journal
