About This Item

(Johannesburg: Southern, 1990) 1868122778. 8vo; original boards; laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pictorial endpapers; pp. (x) + 149, incl. index; map; full-colour photographic plates. Trace of curl to dustwrapper's top edge; slight foxing to edges and reverse of dustwrapper. Very good condition. "Maputaland stands at the crossroads. Its unspoilt golden beaches have witnessed the ancient annual ritual of turtle breeding since time immemorial. It has pristine estuaries and unpolluted lake systems, beautiful natural forests and diverse natural resources. To the tourist it offers the excitement of game fishing and deep-sea diving in a tropical wonderland, well-stocked game reserves and a variety of birdlife that is unequalled in South Africa. It has a timelessness that makes it a part of ancient Africa, when man lived in greater harmony with his environment. ... Paradise under Pressure portrays this magnificent region as it is today. It not only describes the area's natural beauty and diverse fauna and flora, but also raises the important issues of poverty and rural degradation that make beauty and conservation secondary issues in the daily fight for survival. It is a stimulating and thought-provoking book that has immense relevance for conservation in developing countries." .
