BOOK REVIEWS: Forests in a Market Economy
Abstract:Those of us who teach senior undergraduate and graduate level forest economics courses have often been frustrated with the fact that there is no good textbook for these courses. The publication of this book may ease some of the frustration. Moreover, as the book title implies, it can serve as a background and research guide for forest economists in studying the role of forests in a market economy.
