Interdependent development by H. C Brookfield( Book )

36 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rather than being a book about 'development' per se, this work, first published in 1975, is instead a book about ideas about development, designed for those drawn by a concern over social injustice into the development field. In a selective review of theory, which gives particular emphasis to the spatial dimension in Western, Marxist and neo-Marxist thought, Harold Brookfield traces the evolution of ideas about world inequality and the problem of development from the days before the 'underdeveloped countries' were considered to be a major problem, through the years dominated by 'economic growt

Land degradation and society by Piers M Blaikie( Book )

27 editions published between 1978 and 2015 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

In place of the forest : environmental and socio-economic transformation in Borneo and the eastern Malay Peninsula by H. C Brookfield( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes the course of the modern transformation of Borneo and the eastern side of the Malay Peninsula, an area considered to be "environmentally critical" because of the massive deforestation that has taken place since the 1960s. The book begins with a description of the natural environment and its dynamics, and then reviews the considerable changes that occurred before the modern period. Against this background, the authors examine the changes since World War II and, in the course of several chapters, analyse the question of possible environmental endangerment in relation to the timber-based industries, bio-diversity, transmigrants and other settlers, the indigenous shifting cultivators, possible consequences of deforestation for global warming, and the townspeople who now form a significant part of the population. Drought and fire, and the creation of grasslands are also topics of discussion. The conclusions are mixed, and indicate that the greatest dangers arise from national policies that continue to treat this region as a"resource frontier" despite the growing resource scarcity

"Marx, Lenin and Kautsky all regarded family farming as doomed to be split into capitalist farms and proletarian labour.

Family Farms refutes these notions and analyses the manner in which family farmers have been able to operate with success in both developed and developing countries, using examples wherever these are illuminating
