Strangely Like War: The Global Assault on Forests


Derrick Jensen and George Draffan’s Strangely Like War, featuring a preface by the internationally renowned environmentalist Vandana Shiva, exposes the destructive impact of industrial forestry and the escalating global war on trees.

In this short, hard-hitting expose, the authors detail the activities of an industrial forestry system increasingly globalized, operating outside of any local or even national controls, and now threatening the basic life support systems of the planet itself.

The book is certain to have global implications and to appeal to readers internationally who are concerned about unchecked corporate power and the fate of the planet.

“Thank you, Jensen and Draffan. You awaken our hearts and our commonsense at the same time. You help us see the massive destruction of life built into the dominant, now globalizing, belief system.Your passion and your hard, cruel facts give us courage to imagine another possibility and to act.”
Francis Moore Lappe, co-author, Hope’s Edge: The Next Diet for a Small Planet

“Strangely Like War is must reading for anyone in the least concerned with either the fate of future generations or, indeed, the planet itself. The kind of scholarship and intelligence displayed by Draffan and Jensen demands both integrity and courage. All of us owe them a debt of gratitude for their work.”
Ward Churchill, author of Struggle for the Land
