Summary
"This volume discusses the role of humans in transforming the coastal landscape. The book details the many ways beaches and dunes are eliminated, altered and replaced and the differences between natural landforms and the human artifacts that replace them. A distinguishing feature of the book is the emphasis on the importance of retaining naturally functioning beaches and dunes in ways that achieve natural values while accommodating development and use."--BOOK JACKET
