A well-functioning budget process is more than a set of procedures--it provides a focus for the organization and management to analyze key financial and strategic issues. This invaluable reference addresses the fundamentals of managerial incentives, resource allocation, and practical ways in which these incentives can be managed to serve the strategic goals of the organization by taking an in-depth look at the principles of budgeting for not-for-profit organizations--higher education, charities and foundations, religious organizations, and hospitals and healthcare organizations.
"The editors of this book have composed an excellent, up-to-date overview of continental chemical deposits. ... This volume contributes substantially to a better understanding of several earth-surface processes. It is a book that many earth scientists interested in geomorphology, weathering, soils and continental paleoenviroments long have waited for." (Journal of Sedimentary Research, January 2009)
"I would highly recommend this text to both students and academics—I will certainly be adding it to my class reading lists." (Geographical Journal, 2009)
"This volume provides an excellent introduction to the subject for any undergraduate or taught postgraduate undertaking courses in geomorphology, weathering and soil processes, dryland geomorphology or palaeoenvironmental change and will be a key text for any scientist who is actively researching in the field. It is likely to become an indispensable volume for libraries and academic bookshelves anywhere that geography, earth and environmental sciences are taught."

"Geochemical Sediments and Landscapes is the long-anticipated update of the quarter century old Chemical Sediments and Geomorphology. It consists of fourteen clearly written, concise, up-to-date discussions of the nature, age and genesis of the major groups of chemical sediments by the leading researchers in the field. It addresses contemporary issues of landscape evolution, environmental change and mineral resource exploration. This is a 'must-have' book for all earth scientists interested in the relationships between chemical precipitates and landscape evolution. The book represents a substantial and significant contribution to our understanding of earth surface processes and as such is a valuable addition to the literature of geomorphologies, hydrologists, sedimentologists, geochemists and soil scientists."
