Title Settlements of the Indus River
Author Bowden, R.
Abstract The resources found in rivers attract both wildlife and people, but only people have the means to harness these riches. This series examines when, how, and why humans have settled along the world’s major rivers. The impact of human activity, both current and historical, is examined through specific case studies. Each featured settlement is discussed from its development to the present day, including any natural or human threats and attempts at sustainable development. Brief timelines trace specific settlements, while a compilation timeline in the end matter summarizes aggregate changes along the river. Other features include introductory spreads that put the river into its geographical and historical context; maps, satellite images and aerial photographs; graphs to highlight statistics; and diagrams to illustrate geographical processes
