Annotation:Wong discusses Japan’s role in the destruction of Southeast Asian tropical forests and connects Japanese international policies with domestic issues of deforestation which receive much less attention. Accompanied by statistics and concise historical overviews, Wong communicates the power of general trading companies, inter-ministerial politics, economic fortunes, and diplomatic ambitions over the environment. She proceeds to outline the anti-tropical deforestation campaign in Japan, its successes, weaknesses, and problems, including some suggestions to revitalize the movement.
