This book questions those popular and political assumptions and concludes that they are wrong. Dr Davidson argues that not one irrigation scheme in Australia can be justified on economic grounds. Existing schemes have hindered rather than helped economic development, with a net national loss of at least $5000 million. Irrigation increases rather than alleviates the effects of severe drought." -- rear panel blurb. First Paperback Edition. Paperback. Ordinary/No Jacket. Illus. by maps Etc. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
