Deserts : a very short introduction by Nick Middleton( )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,627 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

"The Global Casino is an introduction to environmental issues which links the physical environment to the political, social and economic contexts in which these issues occur. Case studies from around the globe are used to illustrate key environmental issues, from global warming and deforestation to natural hazards and soil erosion. The book highlights the underlying causes behind environmental problems, including human actions, and emphasises the potential for solutions." "This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with the introduction of new illustrative material and up-to-the-minute case studies. New features include a chapter-by-chapter list of exercises, essay questions and topics for discussion, as well as an expanded glossary. A new emphasis has been placed on making clear the links between specific environmental problems and more general issues relating to the physical and human environments and to the critical concept of sustainable development. The popular lists of key readings and websites, again related specifically to the content of each chapter, have been fully updated and expanded."--Jacket
Rivers : a very short introduction by Nick Middleton( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 558 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

15 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and Chinese and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is a country? Acclaimed travel writer and Oxford geography don Nick Middleton brings to life the origins and histories of 50 states that, lacking international recognition and United Nations membership, exist on the margins of legitimacy in the global order. From long-contested lands like Crimea and Tibet to lesser-known territories such as Africa's last colony and a European republic that enjoyed independence for a single day, Middleton presents fascinating stories of shifting borders, visionary leaders, and 'forgotten' peoples. Beautifully illustrated with 50 regional maps, each country is literally die-cut out of the page, offering a distinctive tactile experience while exploring these remarkable places."--Provided by publisher
