Oxford, 2003, Softcover, Book Condition: Good, Unstated
This book provides the first comprehensive overview of coastal management in Australia. It demonstrates the global significance of the coast and the international imperative to manage it properly. The book focuses on the pressures being placed on the Australian coast by demonstrating the linkages between coastal processes and human impacts through an interesting series of case studies, rather than a classic text book approach. The book is also useful because it provides a background to the various coastal management systems operating in Australia and then illustrates how these work in practice, using selected 'real world' examples from the different states and territories.
