Fashioning Australia's Forests -by- John Dargavel. ISBN 019553526X. History of Australian Forest Management.
A review of Australia's forest management from pre-European times, demonstrating that the
physical structure of forests, and our conceptions of them, are socially
constructed; the author weaves together the story of industrial development and
forest use with the slow acceptance of the case for forest conservancy, and
shows how various 'resource regimes' evolved, fashioning the forests in
different ways: ecologically, spatially, and socially; he then describes the
challenges to these established patterns since the 1970s due to industrial
restructuring, woodchip exports, unsustainable harvesting and the rise of the
environmental movement; the book concludes with a chapter on the prospects for
the forests, their industries and workers in a highly uncertain future.
