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)
