About this book

&i;`This book significantly advances our empirical understanding of China's and Indonesia's twentieth-century soil chemistries and alerts us to a number of analytical and empirical difficulties we face in assessing soil quality specifically and human impacts on the environment more generally.'&o; R. Bin Wong, Professor of History and Social Sciences, University of California, Irvine

This book significantly advances our empirical understanding of China's and Indonesia's twentieth-century soil chemistries and alerts us to a number of analytical and empirical difficulties we face in assessing soil quality specifically and human impacts on the environment more generally. --R. Bin Wong, Professor of History and Social Sciences, University of California, Irvine "This work is significant in that it attempts a novel approach to long-term analysis of soils and agricultural productivity. Other researchers will likely be inspired to conduct similar analysis of data from other areas, and it opens the way for new directions in environmental/agricultural history and economic/policy analysis for agriculture." --Erle C. Ellis, Department of Geography and Environmental Systems, University of Maryland, Baltimore County "Shifting Ground sets a benchmark for the debate over environmental degradation of soils that will make it the standard reference point for decades." --C. Peter Timmer, Dean, Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, University of California, San Diego
