About this book

The authors argue that the desertification problem - in particular the concept of global desertification - has been grossly exaggerated. They seek to demonstrate that the ` desertification myth ' was created by political and institutional factors, and claim that the issue illustrates how certain kinds of environmental thinking - either wilfully or inadvertently - obscure the scientific fundamentals.
