A History of Land Use in Mongolia
The Thirteenth Century to the Present
A History of Land Use in Mongolia examines conceptual and practical issues of land use during eight centuries of Mongolian history. The topic encompasses an analysis of how Mongolia's pastoral nomadic herding population historically has dealt with secular and religious forms of authority in the ongoing struggle for control over pastureland and water resources. The book is based upon a number of field trips to the Mongolian countryside as well as a diverse array of written sources including Russian geographic treatises, historical texts, Mongolian press accounts, and Western economic analyses of the present-day herding sector. Accompanied by over 50 color photographs, the book will appeal to both a general readership (people who would enjoy an illustrated popular history of Mongolia) as well as academics who specialize in Asian history, particularly Central Asian history; environmental studies; political science; and developmental studies.
