With three quarters of the world's original forestss gone and the pace of cutting, clearing, processing, and pulping ever accelerating, Jensen and Draffan lay bare the stark scenario we face - we being not only people, but the nonhuman fabric of life itself - unless deforestation is slowed and stopped. A must read for anyone who wants to understand the relationship between deforestation and our ecological crisis as well as an essential handbook for activists everywhere.

Review:

"Now and then, a landmark book such as Rachel Carson's Silent Spring makes the public keenly aware of the vulnerability of nature to human intervention. Strangely Like War exposes the crisis of the large-scale destruction of the world's forests. Jensen and Draffan have written a passionate expose of the unprecedented greed and power of the timber industry and of the government's role in abetting corporate irresponsibility. Written with conviction, fervour, and facts, this significant work is highly recommended." Library Journal, USA
