Author(s): Bill McKibben
Reissued on the tenth anniversary of its publication, this classic work on the environmental crisis features a new introduction by the author, reviewing both the progress and ground lost in the fight to save the earth.
" Whatever we once thought Nature was--wildness, God, a simple place free from human thumbprints, or an intricate machinery sustaining life on Earth--we have now given it a kick that will change it forever. Humanity has stepped across a threshold. In his free-ranging and provocative book, Bill McKibben explores the philosophies and technologies that have brought us here, and he shows how final a crossing we have made." --James Gleick, author of Chaos
