Abstract: 

A combination of violence and drought has had a pervasive and highly damaging effect on the societies and production systems of this region. This powerful document presents a wide range of social, economic, ecological and historical information and – most importantly – an expert analysis of the interlinkages. Featuring an impressive array of figures, maps and other data, the book also provides a valuable perspective by placing local influences and forces in a global context. The study presents a changing picture of adaptation, flexibility, and response between the different elements and sets the stage for a frank discussion of likely future trends.
