Rivers : a very short introduction by Nick Middleton( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rivers have acted as cradles for civilization and agents of disaster; a river may be a barrier or a highway, bearing trade and sediment, culture and conflict. This volume is a celebration of rivers in all their diversity. The author, a geographer covers a wide and eclectic range of river-based themes, from physical geography and mythology, to industrial history and literary criticism. Offering a truly global look at rivers including the Amazon, the Ganges, the Danube, and the Mississippi, with examples from all continents, including Egypt, India, and Bangladesh, he considers the role that rivers have played in human history from settlements and trade to warfare, and also looks at the human impact upon rivers by the construction of dams and cutting of channels

Deserts : a very short introduction by Nick Middleton( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deserts are remarkable places. Typified by aridity and extremes of temperature, they can be harsh and hostile or spectacularly beautiful. For much of the time a desert may look desolate and lifeless, but on occasion, it teems with life. Nick Middleton explains how each desert is unique: through fantastic life forms, extraordinary scenery, and ingenious human adaptations. He demonstrates the desert's immense natural splendour, oncovers its rich biodiversity, and explores a long history of successful human occupation. Deserts are among the regions in the world most vulnerable to climate change, and even small changes in climatic factors can have numerous effects on all aspects of the landscape and people. Understanding how deserts respond to change has implications for the planet as a whole, and therefore for all of us

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dust storms, produced by the removal of surface materials from the world's drylands, are a vital component of the environment. This is because of their role in biogeochemical cycling, their potential influence on climate, their role in sediment accumulation and their influence on human affairs. This book, which is exhaustively referenced, explores and summarises recent research on where dust storms originate, why dust storms are generated, where dust is transported and deposited, the nature of dust deposits and the changing frequency of dust storms over a range of time-scales."--Jacket
