Abstract:Drought in Africa/Sécheresse en Afrique 2; ed. by D. Dalby, R.J.H. Church, F. Bezzaz. London, International African Institute, 1977. VIII, 200 pp. Bibliogr., graph., maps, tab. A revised and expanded edition of 'Drought in Africa', ed. by D. Dalby and R.J.H. Church. London, 1973. The report contains general and special (case) zone, and the Kalahari. The introductory analysis points out that calamity has not been brought about just by climatic uncertainty, excessive population growth, and spoliation of the natural environment by peasants. (Studies in French summarized in English.) Le rapport rassemble des études multi-disciplinaires, générales et spéciales, sur la famine et la sécheresse en Afrique. L'introduction dépasse l'argument que la crise s'explique par les accidents climatiques, une croissance démographique excessive, et la dégradation du milieu naturel par les hommes. (Résumés en français des études en anglais.)
