This book discusses some of the consequences of development interventions for ordinary people, and some of their environmental concomitants. The contributors all raise new questions of how to redeem the people who live in the arid lands from their present predicament and how to enable them to manage their own future. Many of the insights have been sharpened by ideas well-known to peasants and pastoralists, but seldom discussed among policymakers.
