TL;DR: Bagnold as mentioned in this paper described his travels in the Egyptian and Libyan Deserts, and combined the results of experimental research in a wind tunnel with personal observations in the desert, and the explanations of many desert features vitally affecting such operations will interest a wide range of readers.
Abstract: LIEUT.–COLONEL BAGNOLD is well kno for his scientific publications on desert sands and dunes, and for a book describing his travels in the Egyptian and Libyan Deserts. The present book combines these papers and much other original research into one comprehensive volume, which would, however, have possessed an added interest to readers if the introduction had included some reference to the author's work as a pioneer of motor travel in the desert. Descriptions of desert features in various parts of the world have been written by many travellers, but this book is unique in that the author has combined the results of experimental research in a wind tunnel with personal observations in the desert. The subject has a particularly topical value in connexion with the present war operations in the Libyan Desert, and the explanations of many desert features vitally affecting such operations will interest a wide range of readers. There is also scope for applying the researches to other kindred problems, such as the encroachment of desert sands over cultivated land, which is a serious menace in certain parts of the United States.

TL;DR: The principles of desert, need, and equality as discussed by the authors are the three primary components in Miller's scheme, which are the principles of need, need and equality, and the authors of this book use empirical research to demonstrate the central role played by these principles in popular conceptions of justice.
Abstract: Social justice has been the animating ideal of democratic governments throughout the 20th century. even those who oppose it recognize its potency. Yet the meaning of social justice remains obscure, and existing theories put forward by political philosophers to explain it have failed to capture the way people in general think about issues of social justice. This book develops a new theory. The author argues that principles of justice must be understood contextually, with each principle finding its natural home in a different form of human association. Because modern societies are complex, the theory of justice must be complex, too. The three primary components in Miller's scheme are the principles of desert, need, and equality. The book uses empirical research to demonstrate the central role played by these principles in popular conceptions of justice. It then offers a close analysis of each concept, defending principles of desert and need against a range of critical attacks, and exploring instances when justice requires equal distribution and attacks, and exploring instances when justice requires equal distribution and when it does not. Finally, it argues that social justice understood in this way remains a viable political ideal even in a world characterized by economic globalization and political multiculturalism. This book will appeal to readers with interest in public policy as well as to students of politics, philosophy, and sociology.
