The Wheatbelt, in the South-West of Western Australia, has one of the worst cases of dryland salinity in the world, threatening the future of one of the nations most important agricultural regions. How did Australias salinity crisis reach such huge dimensions? This book is the first attempt to provide a comprehensive explanation.

It traces the relentless drive for agricultural development through massive land-clearing programs, and chronicles the decades of denial by governments that salinity is a problem.

The Salinity Crisis is based on extensive research, and is essential reading for anyone who is concerned about one of Australias most serious environmental problems.
