Recently awarded the international Sprout Award as the best new book on international environment affairs.

Australian author Peter Dauverge explores the disasterous history and background of the massive deforestation of neighbouring tropical South East Asia by Japanese companies in Indonesia, the Phillipines and Malaysia. With the resulting forest fires in the areas and media reports on deforestation this book is timely and topical.

'...sets out a wealth of documented detail that shows how we should be super-sceptical of 'official' business statistics. This is one of the most illuminating tropical forestry books of the last decade.' -- Norman Myers

Peter Dauvergne developed the concept of a 'shadow ecology' to assess the total environmental impact of one country on resource management in another country or area. Aspects of a shadow ecology include government aid and loans: corporate practices, investment, and technology transfers: and trade factors such as consumption, export and consumer prices, and import tariffs.
