Recommended. -- B.D. Orr * Choice May 1999 * The book contains 15 thoughtful essays on a wide range of forest policy topics, all taken from the viewpoint of foresters in British Columbia. A large part of each essay, however, has broad applicability. People more current with British Columbia than this reviewer may find the book somewhat outdated, but it remains a sophisticated and well-constructed overview for the rest of us. -- John C. Gordon, School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale University * Journal of Industrial Ecology, Volume 5, Number 1, 2001 * The ideas are dazzling, imaginative, and innovative. The authors don't pretend to have all the answers to the dilemma of how to restructure BC's most important industry. They do make a major contribution to the discussion. -- Stephen Hume * The Vancouver Sun *
