«The book makes numerous important contributions. If forests are to be promoted as a natural climate solution, as well as for biodiversity and other environmental values, scientists and policy makers will find no better place to start than this book.»

Society & Natural Resources Journal

«This book analyzes the various ways forests are being restored, as illustrated by case studies from all over the world. Rudel eloquently argues that the success of interventions to conserve and expand forests depends on committed governments and nongovernmental organizations working together with local landholders. An essential book to help forests deliver global benefits for humanity, including climate change mitigation.»

Eric Lambin, George and Setsuko Ishiyama Provostial Professor, Stanford University and Professor, UC

«Thomas Rudel is in a class of his own as a wide-ranging thinker and synthesizer of environmental research. Reforesting the Earth is a remarkably timely book that rings a note of optimism for our planet—forwarding the view that severely damaged ecosystems and their imperiled species can be dragged back from the edge of extinction.»

William F. Laurance, Distinguished Research Professor and Australian Laureate, James Cook University

«Reforesting the Earth demonstrates Rudel's ability to weave together a large amount of complex dynamics into a compelling narrative. This narrative makes a convincing case for the crucial role of compacts, or coalitions of actors, as effective agents to address forest conservation and restoration challenges within the broader context of land use, land tenure, inequality, and livelihoods issues. Linking explicitly to the questions of consumption and degrowth, this book provides an optimistic, forward-looking but lucid roadmap for activists' coalitions.»

Patrick Meyfroidt, UCLouvain

«Highly recommended.»

Choice Reviews, the American Library Association (ALA)

«Offer[s] useful insights for environmentalists, policymakers and activists…as well as anyone interested in understanding and contributing to natural climate solutions to address the ongoing global climate crisis.»
