Industrial forestry in North America is at a crossroads. A broad consensus has emerged that both the practice and theory of forestry must change in order to achieve sustainability. This book is a pioneering attempt to consider the concrete policy implications of the much discussed transition to sustainable forestry. It integrates two distinct academic literatures: one that seeks to define and identify ways to implement sustainable forestry, and another that focuses on the relative merits of regulatory and market instruments for promoting environmental values.

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 *
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 People more current with British Columbia than this reviewer may find the book somewhat outdated, but it remains a sophisticated and well-constructed overview for the rest of us.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 *
Recommended. -- B.D. Orr * Choice May 1999 *
