A timely and important book, as anyone knows who has travelled to the tropics.
For those interested in 'sustainable use' as something more than a conservation catchphrase, Hunting for Sustainability in Tropical Forests is a must read. It is a welcome contribution to what is currently a small body of literature detailing the implementation of sustainable use in practice.
(Lisa M. Campbell Environments
Quite simply, Rudel's book is a work of outstanding scholarship....This book will be indispensable reading for anyone concerned with the fate and management of the world's imperilled tropical forests.
(William F. Laurance, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute Environmental Conservation
