Book Description

7 Jun 2007
This is the first study of its kind to trace the history of what was to become one of Japan's major resources and a model of conservation and forestry management. Central to the planning of the Meiji reformers was securing the long-term financial stability of the Imperial household that would not leave it exposed to future political and economic change.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful addition to his previous works on Japanese forestry 17 May 2008
By Ryan L. Waggoner - Published on Amazon.com
This book is well suited for anyone interested in forestry history, the history of Japan's imperial household, and may even hold some value to those looking at property rights in Japan. Although not as accessible to the non-specialist as The Green Archipelago and The Lumber Industry in Early Modern Japan, it is still a wonderful scholarly work.
