332 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). "For millenia, we lived in harmony with the Earth, taking only what we required to survive. But in just the past few centuries, we have used our powers to thrill and amuse ourselves, to satisfy our obsession with consumption and new technology, without regard for the consequences. And in doing so, we have exploited our surroundings on an unprecedented scale. In (this book, the authors) lucidly describe how we have evolved beyond our needs, trampling other species, believing that we can make the Earth work the way we want it to. And they introduce us to the people who are fighting back, those who are resisting the inexorable advance of the 'global economy' juggernaut, the people whose voices are difficult to hear over the din of corporate PR machines. We learn about how human arrogance - demonstrated by our disregard for the small and microscopic species that constitute the Earth's engine, and our reckless use of technological inventions like powerful herbicides or genetically engineered crops - is threatening the health of our children and the safety of our food supply. But it's not too late to change our course. (The book) shows that we are at a turning point - we can either push ahead on our path to destruction, or we can reshape our place in nature and prosper." Gift notation in ink on title page, minor bump at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling.
