    Analyzes the destruction of the Amazon rain forest, examines the ecology, economy, and people of the region, and discusses what must be done to save the forest
  • Book News
    An altogether fascinating account of the natural and social history of the Amazon rain forest from its pre-European integrity through successive stages of conquest, development and destruction, along with parallel efforts to protect the ecosystem and its indigenous population. The disciplines of botany, ecology, history and political analysis are combined to produce a damning critique of empire and an unabashed advocacy of the forest and its peoples. Impressively annotated, and complete with maps, b&w plates, appendices, and an extensive bibliography. Verso is an imprint of the New Left Press. Acidic paper. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
  • Random House, Inc.
