Turning Trees Into Dollars The British Columbia Coastal Lumber Industry, 1858-1913, Hak, Gordon H.
16 Hak, Gordon H. Turning Trees Into Dollars The British Columbia Coastal Lumber Industry, 1858-1913
Toronto University of Toronto Press 2000 0802083056 / 9780802083050 Softcover Near Fine 
A bright, solid book.; 8.82 X 5.98 X 0.79 inches; 239 pages; "The coastal forests of British Columbia are currently a source of controversy, with clashes between corporations, workers, environmentalists, Aboriginals, and politicians frequently in the national media. "Turning Trees into Dollars" sheds light on the historical complexities that lie behind the ongoing crisis. This is a comprehensive account of the formative years of the British Columbian forestry industry. Pinning the historical facts on the central concept of market capitalism, Gordon Hak traces the political, geographical, and technological developments that occurred as small, financially tentative logging operations grew into a major economic force. His narrative traverses the treacherous labour conditions, union activities, the use of immigrant labour, and the role of the First Nations, as well as the mill industry, tariffs and trade, the effects of the Canadian Pacific Railway, industrialization, entrepreneurialism, and the conservation movements that compose the rich terrain of B.C. forestry."

Montreal Mcgill Queens Univ Pr 1995 0773513469 / 9780773513464 Reprint Paperback Very Good 
Card covers show light shelf wear. ; A bright, solid book.; Trade PB; 8.97 X 6.04 X 1.18 inches; 404 pages; "Providing a global picture of a critically important environmental and social issue, Patricia Marchak investigates the tremendous changes taking place in the forestry industry and their ecological, social, and economic impact." "With the growth of industrial forestry in the southern hemisphere and the restructuring of forestry in the northern hemisphere, the industry is undergoing tremendous change. This book investigates the transformations that are taking place, and their ecological, social and economic impact. Patricia Marchak examines issues particular to the northern and southern regions and the global effects of trends in each area, using British Columbia, Brazil, Chile, Indonesia, and Thailand as full case studies and Malaysia, Myanmar, and other south-east Asian regions as shorter case studies. She also examines Japanese forestry and the Japanese paper industry. The book provides in-depth analyses of the restructuring of the global division of labour; the effect of Japanese demand for pulp; changes in employment, production, land policies, and markets in northern countries; deforestation; plantation forestry; and the influence of European, North American, and Japanese companies on tropical forests and peoples. Marchak considers whether industrial forestry is sustainable and suggests ways in which global demand for forest products can be met in more efficient and more sustainable ways."
