The would have given signiÂ®cant justiÂ®cation to the title of the book, which gives the impression of subregional comparative analysis of the subject under review. Overall, this is a carefully researched and well-illustrated book, with useful appendices and references. It is written in simple language by contributors who are experienced, and well informed in the research and public policy aspects of pastoralism and pastoral development in SSA. It therefore constitutes a useful resource for anyone interested in understanding the plight of pastoralists resulting from unsuitable public policies, made possible by the colonial legacy, legislation, the role of international donors and power relations. The implications of these issues for land degradation and development in SSA are far reaching, and need to be given the widest possible publicity. This is what Custodians of the Commons has attempted to achieve.

The focus of the workshop was Instruments for global warming mitigation: the role of agriculture and forestry. The authors represented in the volume come mainly from Europe with a small number from the United States, Canada and Mexico. Where regional issues are considered, all but two of the chapters relate to the developed world, largely in Europe. The aÂliations of the 47 authors give an indication of the themes that deÂ®ne the volume. Well over half are economists or are working in economic institutions. More speciÂ®cally
