A fluent, detailed account of Schistocerca gregaria, its place in human history, its life cycle, the weather conditions that govern the appearance of it in plagues, recently developed methods of control, and prospects for future control. The story is centered in North Africa and the Middle East, but its implications extend to the world-wide prospects of conflict between insecticide use and hazards and the food demands of burgeoning populations.
Very readable, well-illustrated with photographs and maps, and indexed.
