"...a key text in its field providing us with considerable substance to understand and teach this topic."
TENews, 14 June 2005 <!––end––>
"...builds on the success of the two previous successful editions. These have long been the mainstay for students of soil erosion and conservation. The Book states, ′a thorough understanding of the processes of erosion and their controlling factors is a prerequisite for designing erosion control measures on a sound scientific basis wherever they are needed. The aim of producing a text with a global perspective on research and practice is also retained"...) The book does admirably achieve its mission and is written in a clear and comprehensible style."
European Society for Soil Conservation Newsletter, August 2005
"...an...admirable text built on the author′s 35 years of research and teaching. The book is intended for both undergraduates and postgraduates studying soil erosion and conservation as parts of courses in agriculture, engineering and various branches of geography and environmental science. It is likely also to remain a valuable companion for them as they move into professional roles as conservation officers, civil and agricultural engineers and environmental consultants the world over. If you fall into any of these classess then buy it...I strongly recommend it."
European Journal of Soil Science, November 2005
"The book is clearly organized and well–written...The material helps both students and practitioners to learn and enhance their knowledge on erosion control and soil conservation practice...this is a fine book that can only be recommended further."
