This book deals with the development of temperate coastal sand dunes and the way these have been influenced by human activity. The different states in which the habitat exists both for the beach/foredune and inland dune are reviewed against the pressures exerted upon them. Options for management are considered and the likely consequences of taking a particular course of action highlighted. These options include traditional approaches to the conservation and management of wildlife and landscapes as well as habitat restoration. The way the value of the areas changes under different management regimes is considered mainly from an environmental perspective. Consideration is given to new approaches to management and restoration including adopting a more dynamic approach. Audience This book will be of interest to academics, students and professionals concerned with policy formulation and /or actively managing coastal areas.

During the period 4000–1000 BC, prehistoric Britain and Ireland were at their closest. There were significant differences, but at the same time their monuments, art, and artifacts were closely related. This volume brings together the latest research from some 25 prehistorians on both sides of the Irish Sea to produce a clearly written and well-illustrated academic guide to this period.
