Land Degradation and Society by Piers Blaikie

Why does land management so often fail to prevent soil erosion, deforestation, salination and flooding? How serious are these problems, and for whom? This book, first published in 1987, sets out to answer these questions, which are still some of the most crucial issues in development today, using an approach called 'regional political ecology'. This approach acknowledges that the reason why land management can fail are extremely varied, and must include a thorough understanding of the changing natural resource base itself, the human response to this, and broader changes in society, of which land managers are a part.

Land Degradation and Society is essential reading for all students of geography, agriculture, social sciences, development studies and related subjects.
