This book provides the first comprehensive overview of coastal managment 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 linksbetween coastal processes and human impacts through an interesting series of case studies, rather than a classic text book approach. It also provides a background to the various coastal managment systems operating in Australia and then illustrates how these work in practice, using selected 'realworld' examples from the different states and territories.
Nick Harvey is at Adelaide University, Australia. Brian Caton is at Flinders University, Australia.
