Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Patricia Marchak examines issues particular to the northern and southern regions and the global effects of trends in each region, using British Columbia, Brazil, Chile, Indonesia, and Thailand as full case studies and Malaysia, Myanmar, and other south-east Asian regions as shorter case studies. She also examines Japanese forestry and the Japanese paper industry. Logging the Globe provides in-depth analyses of the restructuring of the global division of labour; the effect of Japanese demand for pulp; changes in employment, production, land policies, and markets in northern countries; deforestation; plantation forestry; and the influence of European, North American, and Japanese companies on tropical forests and peoples. Marchak considers whether industrial forestry is sustainable and suggests ways in which global demand for forest products can be met in more efficient and more nearly sustainable ways. Logging the Globe presents a global picture of a critically important environmental and social issue. It will be of great interest to professionals in the industry, policy makers and environmental activists, and those concerned with environmental and social issues.

Synopsis:

With the growth of industrial forestry in the southern hemisphere and the restructuring of forestry in the northern hemisphere, the industry is undergoing tremendous change. Logging the Globe investigates the transformations that are taking place and their ecological, social, and economic impact.

About the Author

"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.
