NEW BOOK ON GUYANA
Guyana: Fragile Frontier
Loggers, Miners and Forest Peoples
by Marcus Colchester
co-published by the Latin America Bureau and the World Rainforest Movement
Launched at the end of July 1997, this book links rainforest destruction, structural adjustment and the dispossession of indigenous peoples.
"The interior of Guyana is now under threat as never before. Already half the country's rainforests, an area the size of Portugal, have been handed out to foreign logging companies, many with disturbing track records overseas. Another area the size of the Netherlands is currently under negotiation".
"Essential reading for anyone concerned with Guyana, its people and natural resources" -- John Hemming, author of "Red Gold" and "Amazon Frontier"
