Edited By Brizga, Sandra and Finlayson, Brian
Only in Australasia can the effect of technological societies on river systems be truly analysed and this unique, accessible book covers key issues in river management from a geomorphological perspective. Australia and New Zealand were colonised only 200 years ago by central bureaucratic administrations. For the whole period of European settlement most river management activities have been carried out by government agencies and the record of their activities is relatively complete. These countries therefore provide good case studies for the impact of technological societies on river systems, having transformed their rivers in a short time from their 'natural' into a heavily managed condition. Geomorphology provides the scientific basis for much of our understanding of river behaviour and geomorphologists are now actively involved in the management process. This book provides a collection of case studies, the first to be produced to date, which describe the management of rivers covering issues of environmental flow, stream condition, mining and extractive activities, river channel change, river stabilisation, river regulation and urban streams. The book will prove invaluable to geomorphologists, river engineers, stream ecologists, river managers, and environmental impact assessors involved in river management and restoration.301pp.

Chapman, Matthew
A piece of confessional non-fiction, this 'accidental memoir' aims to shed new light on the Darwinian point of view. A descendent of Charles Darwin, Mathew Chapman grew up feeling intensely and hopelessly competitive with his ancestor. Tormented by a skin disease which disfigured him thoughout his youth, Chapman grew into a shy teenager, until cured, when he reunited himself with society in a most rampant and promiscuous way - ending up in Hollywood. Chapman now lives reclusively in Manhattan, where he is learning to accept that he will never outshine Charles Darwin. As part of this process he recently took a trip to Dayton, Tennessee, where the famous 'Scopes Monkey Trial' took place. This book is about this journey and about the memories it evoked of an overshadowed childhood, of trying to survive both family and Hollywood - the survival of the fittest. 335pp. N.B. Very slight fading to D/J spine.
