Annotation:Knight examines qualitative differences in two Japanese forest policies and finds that neither policy is environmentally sound. As the number one consumer of Asia-Pacific’s tropical wood supplies, Japan plays a large role in Southeast Asian deforestation. Knight critiques Japan’s nationalistic and self-serving forest policies as being less beneficial to the villagers that they advertise that they are supporting. However, Knight describes the limits of global analysis and warns against externalist evaluation and control of the environment.
