United States Department of Agriculture. Forest Service. Pacific Northwest Research Station.
This compendium of papers was developed in response to the assumption that implementing an ecological approach to forest management requires an understanding of socially acceptable forestry -- what it is and the implications of doing it. The papers in this collection bring to bear perspectives from a variety of social science disciplines and question whether the focus on social acceptability is an appropriate and useful one.
