Introduction: An Overview of the Issues
1.
A few of the more prominent recent critiques of national forest management in the popular press include the following: Perri Knize, "The Mismanagement of the National Forests," Atlantic Monthly ( Oct. 1991) pp. 98-112; Michael D. Lemonick, "Whose Woods Are These?" Time ( Dec. 9, 1991 pp. 70-75; "Time for a Little Perestroika," Economist ( March 10, 1990) p. 28; John McCormick. "Can't See the Forest for the Sleaze," New York Times ( Jan. 29. 1992) p. A21; "Two Say Politics Rules Their Agencies," High Country News 23, no. 18 ( Oct. 7, 1991): 1, 10-13; Brad Knickerbocker. "Fight for Federal Lands Spreads," Christian Science Monitor ( March 14, 1990). p. 7; the special supplement to the Portland.

"Feedback to the Chief from the Forest Supervisors of Regions 1, 2, 3, and 4," in the "Sunbird Proceedings": 2nd National Forest Supervisors' Conference. Tucson, Arizona, November 13-16, 1989, reprinted in Inner Voice 2 (Winter 1990): 7, 11.
3.
The two most prominent pieces of evidence of this internal rebellion are the "Sunbird" Forest Supervisors' Conference (ibid.) and the establishment of the Association of Forest Service Employees for Environmental Ethics ( AFSEEE founded in 1989. AFSEEE has a nationally distributed bimonthly newspaper called the Inner Voice which serves as a forum for those promoting reform of the agency (P.O. Box 11615, Eugene, Oregon 97440). AFSEEE has been widely discussed in the popular press. For one example, see Timothy Egan, "Forest Service Abusing Role. Dissidents Say," New York Times ( March 4, 1990) For an interesting sociological analysis of the Forest Service internal reform movement, see Greg Brown, "AFSEEE and Bottom-Up Change in the Forest Service," Inner Voice 5. no. 1 ( Jan./Feb. 1993): 7,
