Poor land management has degraded vast amounts of land, reduced our ability to produce enough food, and is a major threat to rural livelihoods in many developing countries. This book provides a thorough analysis of the multifaceted impacts of land use on soils. Abundantly illustrated with full-color images, it brings together renowned academics and policy experts to analyze the patterns, driving factors and proximate causes, and the socioeconomic impacts of soil degradation.

From the reviews:

"It promises to synthesize scientific knowledge on the impact of different land-uses on soils in a manner that resource managers, policy makers and other non-academics can use. ... a book of significant potential use to students interested in land resources, particularly soil. ... a useful book with several particularly good chapters and significant elements of original analysis. ... the quality of the reviewing and discussion is high and it represents worthwhile reading for soil managers and students and a worthwhile purchase for academic libraries." (John McDonagh, Land Degradation & Development, November, 2008)
