Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Aus den Rezensionen:

"Max Krott verfolgt … das Ziel, die Leserschaft mit einer Analyse der Forstpolitik vertraut zu machen. Das Buch sollte eine Einführung in die Forstpolitik in Europa aus sozialwissenschaftlicher Perspektive darstellen … Krott versucht, eine Brücke zwischen Politik- und Forstwissenschaften zu schlagen. … Der Autor richtet ein besonderes Augenmerk auf die Akteure und Instrumente der Forstpolitik … Dabei diskutiert er insbesondere die Rolle des Staates in der Forstwirtschaft … Zusammenfassend handelt es sich um eine handliche Darstellung wesentlicher Aspekte der Forstpolitik Deutschlands …"

(TIANA A. MOSER, in: Schweizerische Zeitschrift für Forstwesen, 2007, Vol. 158, Issue 3-4, S. 74)
