About the Author:

Patricia Marchak, a professor of sociology at the University of British Columbia, is the author of Ideological Perspectives on Canada and In Whose Interests.

Review:

A remarkably comprehensive analysis of the social, political, and economic role of forests as one of the principal single-staple industries in British Columbia ... deals particularly with the susceptibility of the forest industry in the Pacific Northwest to external economic conditions and export markets. ... [It] should appeal to a broad audience of political scientists, economists, sociologists, natural resource specialists, and regional planners. (Choice)

A comprehensive analysis of the social, political, and economic role of forests as one of the principal single-staple industries in British Columbia, this book explores the history of forestry in the province, legislation and governmental control, labour unions, community and industry structure, employment conditions for men and women, job security, and “boom or bust” ideologies.
