    HarperCollins 2009; US$ 12.99

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 45.00

    Cambridge University Press 1988; US$ 68.00

    Six contributors explore the role of governments in accelerating the rate of forest destruction by providing direct and indirect subsidies to support what would otherwise be non-commercial logging operations.
