We are destroying our natural environment at an increasing pace, and undermining the preconditions of our own existence. This book reveals that our ecologically disruptive behaviour is rooted in our nature as a species.
Drawing on evolution theory, biology, anthropology, archaeology, economics, environmental science and history, this book explains our ecological predicament by placing it in the context of the first scientific theory of humankind's development, taking over where Darwin left off. The theory presented is applied to our seven-million-year history.
Due to its extensiveness, its glossary and index, this book functions as a compact encyclopedia covering the whole development of Homo sapiens. It would also suit many courses in the life and social sciences.
&i;'Dilworth's book is very interesting, well written, and based on an incredible amount of research. It provides a thoroughly novel view of extremely important issues, one which will add considerably to the discussion concerning limits to growth.'&o;
- Dennis Meadows, co-author of Limits to Growth.
