Special issue on fire in the wildland-urban interface available online
With the forest fires still burning in southern California, the publication of Fall 2008 issue of _Forest History Today_ is rather timely, to say the least. The Forest History Society is proud to present articles by leading historians, journalists, and fire researchers that look at the history of fire in the wildland-urban interface, the need to rethink the approach in the U.S. to fighting fire in the WUI, the role that historians can play in these discussions, and how news coverage of wildfires has changed over the years. Contributors include Steve Pyne, William Sommers, Jack Cohen, Mark Neuzil, Rocky Barker, and Patty Limerick. These articles are based on papers delivered at a workshop that preceded this spring’s American Society for Environmental History meeting in Boise on fire and the wildland-urban interface. You can find the issue at www.ForestHistory.org/Publications/FHT/index.html or through the blog, PeelingBacktheBark.org.
