Summary
"In the twenty-first century, droughts have become more common and more prolonged in many areas around the world. Among other effects, droughts have a significant impact on the crops that feed us. This book explores the topics of drought and crop failure throughout history and in modern times. Through detailed photographs, sidebars, and Did You Know boxes, it presents a vivid overview of droughts and crop failure around the world, examines the causes of such events, and studies key people and organizations creating new technologies that battle droughts and crop failure. Finally, this book delves into the technologies themselves, exploring their usefulness today and considering how they might be improved upon in the future." -- Amazon.com
