Praise

…Mathews offers a provocative, new approach to environmental research, one that is rooted in anthropology and social forestry but would be equally at home in a geography, sociology, conservation biology, STS, or policy class. The text would be highly useful for graduate students and senior-level undergraduates.—Nora Haenn, Human Ecology

In this fascinating book, Andrew Mathews studies, with much great detail and in great depth, the ways in which Mexico dealt with the protection and management of forests in the twentieth century, particularly between 1926 and 2001. Mathews’s study, which is wonderfully researched and very well written, traces the roles of the modern state, bureaucracy, science, conservation, and indigenous communities, among other factors, in the dynamic between Mexican forests and the people that surround them.

Camilo Quintero, ISIS

Andrew Mathews has produced an engaging and theoretically rich text that spans disciplines and draws important conclusions about our understandings of knowledge, nature, and the modern state.

Alexander J. Myers, Rural Sociology
