This is the first-ever regional study of the geomorphology of the world's deserts, demonstrating why different deserts have special landscape features and land-forming processes. It explains the climatic and tectonic history of deserts, showing how the histories of the deserts have been longand complex, and how they have responded to global changes in climate, particularly over the course of the last few millions of years. Each of the major warm deserts of the world is treated in detail, and the book is extensively illustrated with numerous plates and figures. A large andcomprehensive bibliography provides a guide to the international literature.
Professor of Geography, University of Oxford, since 1984; Pro-Vice-Chancellor 1995-97; currently a Delegate of Oxford University Press; author of numerous publications
