Managing Northern Europe's Forests : Histories from the Age of Improvement to the Age of Ecology Hardback

Edited by K. Jan Oosthoek, Richard Stefan Holzl

Part of the Environment in History: International Perspectives series

Description

Northern Europe was, by many accounts, the birthplace of much of modern forestry practice, and for hundreds of years the region's woodlands have played an outsize role in international relations, economic growth, and the development of national identity.

Across eleven chapters, the contributors to this volume survey the histories of state forestry policy in Scandinavia, the Low Countries, Germany, Poland, and Great Britain from the early modern period to the present.

Each explores the complex interrelationships of state-building, resource management, knowledge transfer, and trade over a period characterized by ongoing modernization and evolving environmental awareness.
