"Britain possesses one of the most remarkable and varied coastlines in the world, with its richness in geology and human history on display. Since the dawn of time the sea has been sculpting the rocks, sands and marshes, constantly changing the shape of the coastline and the inhabitants of Britain have adapted, defended, sometimes surrendered it or recaptured it in response to the forces of nature. The Living Coast brilliantly celebrates this dynamic interplay between sea, land and people in 376 sumptuous images from the air - a seagull's-eye view round the 9,000 miles of British coast, from Land's End to the wave-pounded isles and the ancient rocks of the far north; the receding shores and sensationally beautiful estuaries of the east; and, the familiar chalk cliffs, crumbling Jurassic coast and drowned river valleys of the south."--BOOK JACKET.

Author: Angus Deaton
This paper is concerned with two related questions, first, what determines coffee and cocoa yields, and second, how should the government determine the farmgate prices for the two crops. Section 1 of the paper is a preliminary analysis of the agricultural data from the Living Standard Survey. Section 2 looks at cocoa and coffee yields and their determinants. It examines the age/yield relationships and the apparent effects of fertilizer and pesticide use on yields. ALso examined are a range of other factors that might play a role in determining yields, for example, prices of other crops, wage rates, household size, and educational levels. Section 3 turns to distributional issues involved in the pricing of cocoa and coffee. Typical budgets for farmers are presented, and their position in the income and consumption distribution descibed. Section 4 concerns itself with the analysis of policy change, and speculates on what might be the effects of moving towards the policy of allowing domestic prices to be determined by world prices. Finally, section 5 summarizes the major policy conclusions and outlines areas where further research is likely to be useful in improving policy advice.

"The goal of The Changing California Coast is to provide perspective on the realities of living on the California coast, its challenges and issues, and the nitty gritty of what to consider before buying or building a house. The book achieves this aim by providing a tutorial on the potential hazards of coastal living, and systematically covering the coast from border to border. A must read for anyone whose idea of the coast is based on too many episodes of Baywatch."--Paul D. Komar, author of Beach Processes and Sedimentation "California's coast is a living landscape endlessly besieged by waves and tides, upland erosion, seismic forces, and human efforts to secure land's edge in place. A geography of awesome beauty and constant conflict, the coast is where people want to be. Living with the Changing California Coast is a must read for property owners, developers, investors, public officials, and activists who care about our coast's future. This book lays out the consequences of our tendency to wall up the coast and what we might do to reverse the trend. A most thorough, alarming and compelling tale of what is happening to our shoreline. Will policy makers listen?"--Peter Douglas, Executive Director of the California Coastal Commission

From beach cottages to surf shacks, romantic vacation hideaways to bohemian nods to the past, Surfside Style showcases decorative inspiration for all of us who love the ocean or dream of living by the sea. Here interiors bear the influence of maritime colors and simple, natural textures, hand-hewn beams, bleached wood, weathered planks, woven blankets, and mother-of pearl tones.
