    Jeremy Purseglove has many years' experience as a landscape architect and ecologist, taking a pioneering approach to river management and land drainage. In Taming the Flood he traces the history of British wetlands, describes the often disastrous attempts to control and drain them, and advocates techniques that aim to harness nature rather than repress it. First written in 1986, the book now includes a new chapter in response to recent events such as the flooding of the Somerset Levels in 2013/14.
