This book is an interesting, thoroughly researched, and well-written case study using a multidisciplinary approach, involving both biophysical and social sciences, in addition to integrated views of researchers, policy-makers and farmers. It covers an important research topic, given the high and increasingly wide-spread malnutrition and famine, degradation of eco-systems, with recession of forests and pastures, and wind erosion of vast quantities of soil in the drylands.
