Item description for The Social Dynamics of Deforestation in the Philippines: Actions, Options, and Motivations by Gerhard Van Den Top...
By way of a detailed case study based on 10 years of research on the dynamics of forest use, degradation, and loss in northeast Luzon, Philippines, this survey offers a compelling look at the long history of national, regional, and local outsiders gaining access to the natural resources and lands of one of the world's last large forest frontiers. Following an interdisciplinary approach that balances systematic survey data with qualitative, almost anecdotal, reporting of conversations between key actors, the text places the degradation and loss of forest cover in this area between 1950 and 1990 in the sociopolitical context of logging, forest migration, and changes in upland agriculture.
