Aus den Rezensionen: "Max Krott verfolgt ! das Ziel, die Leserschaft mit einer Analyse der Forstpolitik vertraut zu machen. Das Buch sollte eine Einfuhrung in die Forstpolitik in Europa aus sozialwissenschaftlicher Perspektive darstellen ! Krott versucht, eine Brucke zwischen Politik- und Forstwissenschaften zu schlagen. ! Der Autor richtet ein besonderes Augenmerk auf die Akteure und Instrumente der Forstpolitik ! Dabei diskutiert er insbesondere die Rolle des Staates in der Forstwirtschaft ! Zusammenfassend handelt es sich um eine handliche Darstellung wesentlicher Aspekte der Forstpolitik Deutschlands !" (TIANA A. MOSER, in: Schweizerische Zeitschrift fur Forstwesen, 2007, Vol. 158, Issue 3-4, S. 74)
