Media reviews
Logging the Globe is a timely and original study of one of the most controversial and urgent subjects in the global environmental debate. It is the work of an insider to the forest products industry but its perspective on that industry is shrewdly critical. This is the broadest synthesis yet on the international timber trade which links North and South, temperate and tropical regions of the world. The work's greatest virtue lies in its excellent studies of the industry in Latin America, Asia, and Canada. Richard Tucker, School of Natural Resources, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.
