For Ho Chi Minh and other political leaders, forests were always about more than trees: they were about the development and administration of people and landscapes. Forest policy has rarely been about ecology or conservation for natures sake, but instead is about managing citizens and society, a process Pamela McElwee terms environmental rule.

Combining archival data with longitudinal field research to present a nuanced perspective on ecological change in Vietnam, Forests Are Gold tells us not just about environmental management and nature conservation but also about the birth of Vietnam itself.This detailed and provocative study of forest management in Vietnam promises to become a landmark work for political ecology and Southeast Asian studies.
