The Ecology of War in China: Henan Province, the Yellow River, and Beyond, 1938-1950


by: Micah S. Muscolino
This book explores the interplay between war and the environment in Henan Province, a hotly contested frontline territory that endured massive environmental destruction and human disruption during the conflict between China and Japan that raged during World War II.

It created 80 years of social suffering, economic downturn, political upheaval, and environmental changes, which reshaped the medieval North China Plain and challenged the state.
