Strangely Like War is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the relationship between deforestation and our ecological crisis, as well as an essential "handbook" for forest and anti-globalisation activists.
"Now and then, a landmark book such as Rachel Carson's Silent Spring makes the public keenly aware of the vulnerability of nature to human intervention. Strangely Like War exposes the crisis of the large-scale destruction of the world's forests. Jensen and Draffan have written a passionate expose of the unprecedented greed and power of the timber industry and of the government's role in abetting corporate irresponsibility. Written with conviction, fervour, and facts, this significant work is highly recommended."
