Lukas Straumann: Money Logging: On the Trail of the Asian Timber Mafia

Available from November 2014

Money Logging investigates what Gordon Brown has called ‘probably the biggest environmental crime of our times’—the massive destruction of the Borneo rainforest by Malaysian loggers. Historian and campaigner Lukas Straumann goes in search not only of the lost forests and the people who used to call them home, but also the network of criminals who have earned billions through illegal timber sales and corruption. Money Logging is a story of a people who have lost their ancient paradise to a wasteland of oil palm plantations, pollution, and corruption—and how they hope to take it back.

Lukas Straumann: Raubzug auf den Regenwald - Auf den Spuren der malaysischen Holzmafia

Some 170 years have gone by since Sarawak came into being as a private kingdom. Today, Sarawak belongs to Malaysia and is ruled with a rod of iron by the despotic Taib Mahmud. Around 90% of the primeval forest has disappeared since he came to power, while the ruler's family has accumulated wealth worth billions and spread it around the globe. It is the country's indigenous inhabitants who have lost out. The author, Lukas Straumann, holds a PhD in history and is today the executive director of the Bruno Manser Fund. Taking the example of the peoples affected, such as the Penan, Southeast Asia's last nomadic hunter-gatherers, he recounts the gripping history of the Borneo rainforest from its discovery by Europeans in the 19th century through to its destruction in the present.

They tell of shared adventures and fears, Manser's fights with giant snakes, his encounters with spirits and his talent in uniting the Penan to resist the loggers.

Thom Henley: A Seed of Hope

English: A privileged teenager, lost in the tragedy of his loveless life, finds escape – first in street drugs, then in a jungle, half a world away. The peculiar circumstances which put the boy there pale in comparison to the life and death struggles he now finds himself in. Terrifying tropical storms, raging rivers, deadly snakes, blood-sucking leeches and a hostile government confront the young man, but it is his own inner fears which challenge him most.
Ironically, it is a remnant of humanity’s most archaic past, the last nomadic forest dwellers of Borneo, that offer the boy, and the world, the prospect of hope for the future.

Ruedi Suter: Bruno Manser - Die Stimme des Waldes

Ruedi Suter's book is much more than simply a biography of Bruno Manser. The author provides a valuable chronicle of the national and world political events that occurred in parallel with Manser's life, places Manser's evolution and politicisation in that context and also critically analyses his political decisions. We are missing Bruno Manser in the struggle for the rights of the planet's indigenous inhabitants – just how much is brought out clearly in Ruedi Suter's book.
