Review quote

"[T]he book is well written and structured, comprising similar amounts of text and tabulated empirical survey data, which together present an informative statistical profile and analysis of the subject matter. It would be particularly useful as an advanced undergraduate text, but could also be of interest to a wider non-academic audience."--The Economic Journal"This book offers an extensive, well-organized, original, household-level data set on the mechanisms of frontier deforestation. Such evidence...is relatively rare, and sufficient for recommending this book to a range of readers."--Journal of Interamerican Studies and World Affairs "[T]he book is well written and structured, comprising similar amounts of text and tabulated empirical survey data, which together present an informative statistical profile and analysis of the subject matter.
