Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a Dark Wood depicts the fight to save the old-growth forests of the Northwest - the biggest environmental conflict in U.S. history - and explains how the ideas generated by this battle have come to dominate American politics and culture. Bringing unprecedented clarity to this subject, Chase weaves together the dramatic stories of individuals who clash over powerful ideas whose implications they do not understand. The book begins with a shocking account of the 1990 car bombing of environmental activist Judi Bari, then explores the origins of the conflict through the eyes of loggers, foresters, activists, scientists, and rangers. It proceeds to a blow-by-blow description of the full-scale war that ensued after the leveraged buyout of the Pacific Lumber Company by Wall Street raider Charles Hurwitz. And it describes how radical environmentalists lost the battle but won the war with the dissemination of biocentrism, the philosophy that holds that humans are no more important than other
