About this title:

Synopsis: The forests of British Columbia and the U.S. Pacific Northwest have long been key to the biophysical and economic well-being and the cultural identity of the region. During the last two decades these forests have become the subject of increasing conflict due to competing demands, which are a reflection of conflicting economic interests and social/political values and visions.

This book examines the sources of conflict and suggests steps toward resolving forest policy issues. It is unique in two ways: First, it examines forest policy in the context of a binational region, exploring how two political systems, facing similar cultural and economic challenges, have treated their forests. Second, the book brings consideration of environmental justice to forest policy discourse by highlighting perspectives of people--Natives, private non-industrial forest owners, citizen activists and workers in the emerging non-timber forest economy--whose voices are often unheard in forest policy debate.

Book Description: This valuable collection of essays offers new perspectives that recognize the complexity of the issues and the diversity of interests in forest politics on both sides of the Canada-US border.

Book Description University of British Columbia Press, UK, 2000. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. First Edition. 256 Pages. Book is slightly marked. Forests define the pacific coast in many ways. Culturally they are part of the traditions of the first Nations; economically they have sustained an industry that has created settlements and wealth throughout the area. In the last twenty years, forests have become the subject of increasing conflict, as economic interests clash with changing social and political values. The war in the woods has escalated, hardening battle lines and polarizing forest politics. The contributors to Sustaining the Forests of the Pacific Coast offer new perspectives that recognize the complexity of the issues and the diversity of interests in forest politics. A valuable contribution to the ongoing debate over forest policy on both sides of the Canada-US border, these essays analyze the challenges facing forest policy makers and open the discussion up to those whose voices have not been heard before.
