'One Hundred Rings and Counting
is a sterling study of professional forestry education in North America and of educational politics in general (every dean, regardless of school, should read this book). Kuhlberg's tour de force keeps a keen historical eye on the internal life of the Forestry Faculty while at the same time outlining the external forces affecting the program, including national and provincial politics, the relationship between funding and curriculum, and the indelible links between global events such as wars and depression and the human experience in this relatively small corner of the university.' (Char Miller, Environmental Analysis Program, Pomona University)|'One Hundred Rings and Counting
, a remarkable account of forestry education set within a large university, is a page-turner that begs reading twice—once for the story and again to savour the detail and nuances. Changing public perceptions of the forest have variously contained elements of ignorance, apathy, and advocacy, and Kuhlberg's exceptional book provides a historical perspective that I hope will encourage and guide further debate about forests, forestry, and forestry education.'
