From Jerry's webpage:

The photo ....(circa 1986) was taken during a trip to the Karakorum Mountains in Northern Pakistan. The environment is extremely beautiful in its starkness, and is very arid because the seasonal monsoons moving east across the Indian subcontinent have dropped most of their mosture by the time they reach the Karakorum. The thin green line along the right of the photo indicates the location of a hand-dug irrigation canal that brings water (in the form of glacial melt) to farms in the valley below. The larger clump of vegetation at the far right betrays a leak in the irrigation canal. I'm wearing my favorite hat, from Nepal.

I've recently returned from sabbatical at the Asian Economics Centre, in the Economics Department at the University of Melbourne. .... During my sabbatical I completed work on a book, co-edited with Ian Coxhead at University of Wisconsin, entitled "Land Use Change in Tropical Watersheds: Evidence, Causes and Remedies." Here is the Table of Contents . The book will be published by CAB International in late 2005.
