Patterns Of China's Lost Harmony
Patterns of China's Lost Harmony blends historical documentation with contemporary assessment to determine the degree of human impact upon the country's vegetation, soils, water, air and wildlife.
This book introduces the development of environmental ideas as found in the ancient Chinese classics and traces the history of vegetation degradation. The pattern of land degradation is described with emphasis on soil erosion and desertification. Pollution, which increased dramatically throughout the 1980s, is analysed employing national statistics and local examples; the various policies recently introduced for pollution control are assessed. Wildlife management is scrutinised largely through a discussion of the evolution of China's nature reserve network. Regional variation in degradation and protection is stressed throughout.
Filling an important gap in the literature on China's environment by providing a comprehensive assessment of China's environment as of the early 1990s, this book will serve as an important reference tool, both for understanding the historical scope of environmental degradation and for assessing attempts to control environmental degradation since the 1980s.
Elements Of Harmony
From the PREFACE TO THE FOURTH EDITION.
Although this little work was originally written with some hesitancy, because of the number of really good Harmony manuals already before the public, I trust that my first aim, to simplify, has been to a good degree successful. It is hoped that the correction of typographical errors in the first edition and a few changes of phraseology for the sake of clearness will greatly enhance the usefulness of these elementary lessons.
As remarked in the first edition, this book is not an experiment. Its rules, substantially as here printed, have been successfully used for years by those studying with me. Explanations and other remarks that might at first appear superfluous, had their origin in the repeated corrections of pupils' exercises; yet every conscientious teacher will find it necessary to supplement them with assistance adapted to the wants of each pupil.
In view of an unexpectedly early demand for a fourth edition, I desire to extend my sincere thanks to those who, by using this book, have so materially contributed to its success.
