Summary "This book documents the changes in cultural landscapes ranging from the farm and forest lands of Europe and Eastern North America, through to the pasture lands and savannas of the Middle East and Africa to the paddylands of the Pacific Rim. The contributors illustrate them through detailed case studies of a representative selection of threatened landscapes, analyzes their underlying causes and explores ways by which they can continue to be maintained, or new landscapes created which maintain their desired characteristics."--BOOK JACKET
