WIENS, HEROLD J.
Geographical Limitations to Food Production in the Mongolian Peoples Republic. From Annals of the Association of American Geographers, Dec 1951, XLI/4, pp 348-369
Association of American Geographers. 1951. Soft cover. Book, Offprint. 21pp, 4 figures. 4to/26cm. Tan printed wrappers, light wear, internally fine. VG+. The author's conclusion is that there is little possibility for increased food production and that therefore Soviet Russia, especially Siberia, cannot expect food exports from Mongolia or anything more than political and strategic benefits from its interest in Outer Mongolia. Herold J. Wiens (1912-1971) was a professor in the Geography Department of Yale University with a special interest in China. Fine.
