Thai Forestry : A Critical History Paperback / softback
For nearly a century, Thai state forestry focused overwhelmingly on extracting timber and keeping local people away from the forests.
In forest ecosystems that contain some three thousand species of trees, Thai state foresters have concentrated on just three--teak, pine, and eucalyptus.
While in recent years foresters have shifted their focus to conservation, they continue to pursue policies that marginalize communities, leaving them with little option but to protest and resist.
