At the Cutting Edgeby Elizabeth May, Farley Mowat (Foreword by), Sierra Club Books
Is Canadian forestry on the brink of collapse? World-renowned environmental activist Elizabeth May think it is, and in this exhaustively researched and controversial book tell us why. May reveals that both provincial and federal governments practice "voodoo forestry" by providing the public with overly optimistic projections for growth and colluding with the forest industry's "myth of inexhaustibility".
At the Cutting Edge foresees the coming of an age when Canada is no longer a world leader in the supply of forest products but a third-tier provider forced to clearcut and destroy its environment in order to maintain a place in the global forest industry. The Book will be invaluable to both Canadian and American environmentalist in their efforts to increase public awareness and to promote sustainable forestry and better management of North America's renewable resources.
