1 SHOUMATOFF, Alex MURDER IN THE RAIN FOREST. The Chico Mendes Story
London Fourth Estate 1991 1872180191 / 9781872180199 First Edition Hardcover Fine VG 
381pp+illus. Dj has just tiny chip and slight scuffs to rear, but still NR FINE. When Chico Mendes, a then unknown Brazilian rubber-tapper, was gunned down in the remote Amazonian state of Acre in 1988, it appeared to be just another murder in the backlands of Brazil. But his death provoked international outrage and he became the symbol of the struggle to save a fragile eco-system under threat from developers. Mendes had organised human blockades against the chainsaw crews of ranchers and speculators. The author, a respected nature writer, describes the greed, violence and brutal politics in the region as forest people lose their way of life. Includes Sources and Index.
