This volume contains the edited papers from the First National Conference on Australian Forest History held at the Centre for Resource and Environmental Studies, Australian National University in May 1988. Papers span a range of themes: long ecological transitions, Aboriginal use of the forests and woodlands, their rapid transformation since European settlement, the structures of government, industry and labour, and changing perceptions of the values of forests. There is also a treatment of sources and a review of forest history in North America. The collection shows that there is a lively cross-disciplinary interest in Australian forest history with much that is relevant to understanding not only the past but also today's conflicts and dilemmas in managing the remaining forests and woodlands. 529 pages.
