The significance of this volume can best be understood from the character of the meeting which it summarizes and commemorates. In April, 1955, there was held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a world wide conference on arid land use, organized under the able leadership of the AAAS, with the University of New Mexico as host. To it were brought some of the ablest experts in arid-lands history, use techniques and research, from all over the world. It was a notably successful attempt to pool world-wide experience and information on the age-old efforts of men to occupy and live on arid and semi-arid territory, which makes up nearly a third of the land surface of the earth. A host of disciplines were represented by experts drawn from seventeen countries. For a week they lived together, ate and drank and relaxed together, took field trips and attended meetings.
