From the reviews:

"The Aral was something between a sea and a lake: a large inland body of salty water surrounded by semi-desert, fed by two great rivers ... . Now, in some seasons, the two rivers do not even reach the Aral ... . As a result the Aral is now a shrinking collection of shallow saline lakes, interspersed with dry salt pans. ... University libraries catering for academic programmes in environmental sciences, geography or East European/Central Asian studies may find it worth acquiring this ... ." (Martin Guha, Reference Reviews, Vol. 23 (6), 2009)

"This encyclopedia documents the environmental devastation of Central Asia's Aral Sea region. Contributors have synthesized the principal research about the Aral Sea, chronicling the events and actors involved in its dramatic decline. Most entries provide a succinct, clearly written narrative; some include black-and-white photographs, diagrams, or maps. ... Included is a time line of Aral Sea events from the 16th to 21st centuries. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." (G. P. Clement, Choice, Vol. 47 (2), October, 2009)
