About this book

Today, in many areas of the world, we are damaging and destroying the soil on an unprecedented scale. This timely book is a scientist's explanation of its chemistry and biology, an historian's account of the way in which successive civilizations have perished when they abused it, and a conservationist's indictment of our own mistreatment of an indispensible resource.
