The Idea of the Forest

German and American Perspectives on the Culture and Politics of Trees


Karla Schultz and Kenneth Calhoon

The Idea of the Forest is a collection of essays originally delivered at the University of Oregon during an interdisciplinary conference on the forest and its role in the political cultures of both Germany and North America. Contributions examine the forest as a site in the imagination as well as the focal point of current political, economic and ecological disputes.
