The Amazon rain forest covers more than five million square kilometers amid the territories of nine different nations and represents over half of the planet's remaining rain forest.
This book highlights in compelling detail the panorama of destruction that has occured in Amazonia and also reveals the extraordinary turnaround that is now taking place, thanks to both the social movements, and the emergence of new environmental markets.
Hecht's and Cockburn's historical perspective is illuminating.... They are to be congratulated. - Nature "This is a powerful book, elegantly written and well informed." - Times Literary Supplement"
