"This exceptional book is a rare combination of the best traditions of social history and environmental history in a powerful analysis of Chile's forestry sector from the late nineteenth century to the present.... Readers interested in the contemporary environmentalist challenge of Mapuche movements today will find La Frontera indispensable. Historians interested in Latin America's experience of 'enclosing of the commons' will find no better book." -- Heidi Tinsman * The Historian * "Klubock's source base for this nuanced and detailed monograph includes diverse archival materials, many of which had not previously been used by historians, as well as oral histories of forestry workers, labour activists and indigenous communities. ... This is an excellent study, addressing an extremely complex history, to which a review of this length cannot do justice. La Frontera pioneers a new approach to social and environmental history and will be a reference in point for years to come." -- Patience A. Schell * Journal of Latin American Studies * "La Frontera makes its social subjects come alive. It convincingly shows that the debate over the forest has a long history and that we cannot understand forest policy without taking social history into account. This is political ecology at its best." -- Eduardo Silva * European Review of Latin American and Caribbean Studies * "La Frontera brings a great deal to the table; individual chapters provide enough fodder for a week's seminar meeting. Undergraduates might feel overwhelmed, but as that list of themes indicates, they will find in the book many crucial features of the long twentieth century in Latin America as a whole.With Klubock's telling, we have new ways to understand how Chile experienced those processes." -- Thomas D. Rogers * HAHR * "A much-needed analysis of a region the history of which has been understudied." -- Claudio Robles-Ortiz * Journal of Agrarian Change * "La Frontera: Forests and Ecological Conflict in Chile's Frontier Territory tells the compelling backstory to Chile's forestry boom. Indigenous people, settlers and foresters were pushed out through enclosure and fraud, as temperate rainforest was burned to make way first for agriculture, then sterile plantations of Monterey pine." -- Patience Schell * Times Higher Education * "La Frontera makes central contributions to Chilean historiography and to scholarship on environmentalism, labor history, and agrarian reform. By putting the forest and the evolving environmental crisis in broad historical perspective, Thomas Miller Klubock shows how deeply and fully environmental degradation was a part of the opening up the frontier. His combination of environmental history with social and revisionist political history is path breaking." -- Florencia E. Mallon, author of * Decolonizing Native Histories: Collaboration, Knowledge, and Language in the Americas * "La Frontera is a unique resource, based on outstanding empirical research. It is the first work that I know of to connect state-building in Chile with the settlement of the country's southern provinces. Thomas Miller Klubock provides a fluid chronological analysis of the social, cultural, and environmental consequences of more than 150 years of different public policies, capturing the complexity of diverse constituencies' demands on forests, water, and other natural resources." -- Brian Loveman, author of * Chile: The Legacy of Hispanic Capitalism *
