The focus is on sheep and wool; on people who raise the sheep, especially minority nationalities; and on degradation of the rangelands on which the animals and ultimately the herdsmen and their families depend. Since the book is based on extensive fieldwork spanning four and a half years, it is unique in that it presents a comprehensive picture of a remote but fascinating and increasingly important part of the world."@en ;
   schema:description "Scholars and policy makers specialising in China will find this volume deals with many aspects of the country not previously discussed in the literature: but this book will also be of interest to a much wider audience. Ecological damage to natural grasslands is one of the most serious but least well documented environmental issues facing humankind. This book provides first-hand observations on the nature and the extent of the problem in northern and north western China. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the authors demonstrate that sustainable development requires more than technology. Unless the necessary policy-determined institutional structures and incentives are in place, the provision of technical assistance, in the form of foreign aid for instance, may actually make matters worse."@en ;
